Do any of you have tiny stomachs also? Or do I not have a small stomach and it's just something else....ugh. Lately I've been eating less and less and feeling worse and worse.

2.Do you wear your seat belt?
3.Are you a patient driver?
i was reading the comments on this post and i had to stop because i'm so sick of white people saying the term "oriental" is inoffensive just because they have asian friends who say so.
( Collapse )
Inspired by the realization today that if I lost my mother I'd be fine but if I lost my father I would be completely devastated.
If you remember my sordid post about my love for my roomie with a blind date, I have updated in TQC_Updates.
After this whole situation, I got my tax refund (YEAH), so I am thinking about spending some monies on a tattoo commerating this chapter of my life. Good idea, Y/Y?
How is it that my roomie can be screaming about artillery in CoD: WaW after this epic proclamation of love?
DK/DC: What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
So I'm looking for suggestions. Does anyone happen to have any hotel recommendations near Chicago?
For those of you who don't give two shits about my vacation, will you tell me your vacation horror stories?
I watched Thankskilling and it was so horrible, but I loved it.
just made some sooo soupy and it's amazing.
ETA: should specify that i'm talking about the boxed kind. but feel free to discuss any kind of mac and cheese.
It can be of anything!!
Will you post a picture of your room?
How about anywhere in the world?
I need some ideas for a vacation spot. I just need to get away.
I have been really busy and unable to see a dentist just yet, but it feels like my top left wisdom tooth just shot the fuck through. OW.
Do you have a "set" routine you cannot break?
Do you have things you MUST do, but in no particular order?
Do these things change with travel?
Not a morning person/DK-DC? How are you feeling right now?
Some mornings I shower, depends on what happened yesterday and my plans for today in addition to if there's time to do my hair. Probably 5 mornings a week I do. Then I have a cup of coffee, bowl and eat toast (the exception being when I'm at my boyfriend's house in Ottowa in which case I have a lamb'sbread bowl (yessss) and go out someplace for food.).
It's kind of too late to break up with them and you've already invested way too much.
For example, my "friend" wants me to friend her co-worker maybe to set me up as for a date or just as a platonic friend. She shows me his facebook page but I'm not really interested in either. I have no idea what's she said about me. Then I ask what she's told him about me, she goes "Not much. There's not much to say about you." I say, "Yes, there is." She's all "Actually, there isn't." but in a condescending tone. It's not the first time she tries to make me feel like shit.
What's the worst thing a friend has said about you to someone you later on became friends with?
And have you ever had Waffle Crisp cereal? Do you like?
Will you suggest some things we can do?
What are some precautions you take when meeting somebody off the internets for the first time?
What if they wrote excellent poetry?
Does anyone else get nauseous like that? What is wrong with me?
EDIT: It's taken care of I think. Boy was absent, so she wore it today, and I took her aside & half reprimanded her, half complimented her on remembering. *whew*
We kissed at his birthday outing for the first time and were official after about a month so...
Would the first date be..
a) Pub dinner and a movie about a week before said birthday party sans kissing and "as friends" yet we were into eachother?
b) his birthday outing?
c) going to an outdoor concert after said birthday outing and makings outz?
d) going out to my show after deciding we were official?
YES I know it does not matter, this is just for the fun of it.
DK/DC: what's your favourite board game or party game?
edit: sorry guys, I fail at tickies.
Are there things you consider rights that others don't?
Things you consider privileges that others consider rights?
Are we the DEMAND CLUB now??
(how come I knew that entry was headed for deletion-ville)
TELL ME HAPPY STORIES
we got hit with an earthquake yesterday
What should I do?
Serious and nonserious answers welcome. And I cut out hookers and blow along with sugar and soda, so they're out...
"Bitch! You fucking whore! You better stay away from my man cunt you fucking slut go die!"
You have a bunch of followers of your own, and anything you respond back may hurt your professional outlook. But your fingers are twitching to reply. What's a nice passive-aggressive comeback?
Mine: "It's going to be okay. The nice doctors in masks will give you your happy gas soon, shhhhh."
Do you like leftovers now as an adult?
Dc/Dk - My psy classes keep talking about how depression and suicide is most common in people age 60+ yet I hear all the time that generally people are happier as they approach middle/late life, which do you think is true?
Let's say for the sake of this question that the world is definitely going to end in 2012. What is the most likely scenario? What is the most unlikely scenario?
"All women are idiots. I broke up with their queen." or "All men are idiots. I broke up with their king."
How do you respond?
Does it change things if you guys have mutual friends who see the bumper sticker regularly?
What if you have shared custody over kids, who see the bumper sticker regularly?
Would you, under any circumstance, bring them to court over it?
I have a big cyst on my chin and it feels/looks awful, but I have 2 sunny nice days off.. I really just want to lay in bed and play Pokemon, hurghl.
If you're a pure skinned asshole, what makes you want to be a hermit?
(EDIT: D'oh, question mark)
I think this is awesome, but the room I am moving into only has one electrical outlet and Im not sure exactly how a hydorponics system would work out in my room. So now Im looking for alternatives.
I know I can just plant the damn things in soil, but the root benefits for putting them in water are great for small containers to still produce large plants. Can I just put em in water and change it myself often? Will they grow that way? Other ideas? Know any good communities I might be able to ask?
DK/DC: When I figure this out/ give up an get window boxes, what kind of plants should I grow?
A follow up question then:
Is it also insensitive to say "better than sex" to a person who is a virgin? Particularly somebody who is well of age (not talking about college students since they are still kind of young to really be worrying about having kids etc...in my opinion at least).
1. We're on the third floor of an apartment complex. (The stairwell is outside - our doors open to the outside, not a general room.) If a tornado were coming, what would be the safest thing for us to do?
2. Does your city have tornado sirens? My hometown did, but where I live now doesn't.
3. Have you ever experienced a tornado?
4. What's the worst storm you've ever been through?
Can you offer me any advice? How would you try to fix it?
So...what are some of your main ones?
Somoe of my biggest ones:
- What if I had joined the Army right out of high school like I wanted to do?
- What if I had accepted that full-ride football scholarship to Memphis?
- What if I had taken college seriously the first time around and not failed out of the engineering program?
- What if I had gotten up the nerve to ask out "the one that got away" in college before she got scooped up by another guy (only to find out, years later, that she considered me to be her "one that got away", too)?
- What if I hadn't bought a house when I did, leaving myself the option of moving for job opportunities (instead of being tied down here because the housing market tanked)?
2)Do you buy stuff off it?
3)What does it usually have? Mine has a lot of vitamins, hairdye, and toothbrushes.
4)Does most tooth-whitening stuff taste like ass? I have toothpaste a notch higher than "blech I'm not buying this again" and toothpolish stuff that's a hair below "oh god I can't have this in my mouth." Do the trays or strips or whatever have that nasty taste?
On zits, specifically large squishy-looking whiteheads:
5)Am I the only person who pops zits instead of covering them or leaving them alone?
6)DO THEY NOT REALISE THEY HAVE A GLOB OF INFECTION UNDER THEIR FACE?
7)^ this is probably mean of me to think, even if I think it in a "oh god no-one told you" way, not a "oh god you're gross" way. How can I think something less mean?
8)Is "Don't pop it because you'll 100% of the time get a scar forever and ever" a conspiracy on the part of teen magazines, since some of their main advertising clients are zit-covering makeups? (This seems like serious hyperbole to me. I'm sure it's very possible to get a scar, but I've never gotten one)
My brother is doing a charity drive for the Special Olympics. If enough people donate, he'll jump into the campus lake.
9) Just based on his stupid haircut and smarmy look alone, would you like to see him jump in a lake?
10) How could he make that haircut look worse? I'm pretty sure he said it was douchetastic on purpose, but he is at least opposed to the popped-collar fratboy look. (He's actually an extremely nice guy)
11) This lake is full of goose poop, algae, garbage, and miscellaneous dead things (fish, turtle, drowned raccoon, occasional student). Would *you* swim in it, even for a good cause?
12) Ever since he's been rocking the douche look, he's had girls checking him out. He was walking past two girls on the lawn by his dorm and heard "He's hot." "I'd do him." -- he was pretty O: D: flabbergasted at that. Why do girls find him attractive?
Edit: Trimmed. I suppose I didn't realise how verbose I was being, trying to give backstory or explain the background to the questions.
last night I forgot to close my wedding inspiration photo folder and he saw a pretty good glimpse of it when I was shutting down my computer. We've been dating for 2 1/2 years, but I don't really want him to know that sometimes when I'm bored on the internet I look at wedding stuff and save picture to my computer. Also, I left livejournal open and he now knows my user name. That was fun trying to explain what my username meant.
what was the last thing someone told you that you didn't want to hear?
my boyfriend told me that the decision to go back to school for my second bachelor's degree is my decision alone and i have to do what's best for me. what I really wanted him to tell me what he thought of the idea, how he felt about it and that he would support me 100% abd be there for me through it all.
also, that he might have to move for a cop job, even though he hasn't applied for any stations in the area. i really don't want to go back to school, thinking he's going to leave me and move away halfway through it. its really stressing me out.
What is your favorite Chinese dish?
Monday: Ugh, weekends are too short.
Tuesday: GDI, it's only Tuesday? At least LOST is on.
Wednesday: Hump day. This week needs to end.
Friday: This day needs to end soon.
Saturday: Ugh, swimming pool.
Sunday: YAY sleeping in! (but tomorrow is Monday, ugh)
My question is this: isn't this still the national anthem of Germany, at least in part? Doesn't it pre-date Nazism? Was there really any reason for her to get offended? She seemed shocked that no one else on the train stopped the guy, but I'm taking that as an even stronger sign that they saw no reason to since the song has a more complex history than she understood.
Care to share?
My mom's going to undergo colonoscopy to find out if she possibly has colon cancer (all signs point to it), both her sister and aunt died from the same cancer. I'm really scared.
For example Joan Jean Smith marries John Jones and she becomes Joan Smith Jones. I am not talking about a double barreled/hyphenated surname, but rather it becoming her new middle name.
Also please tell me where you are from/you heard of it.
(I had never heard of it until yesterday, yet I was told by an American that it is really common.).
So TQC, if you were us, how would you spend Saturday?
On a related note, what are you doing this weekend?
My Dad's death.
Stupid eating habits/fears.
2.) What's your definition of healthy eating?
The dentist today gave me the wonderful news that as it has no nerve and is therefore dead and crumbly, they're going to have to cut the gum and drill it out.
I have never had a tooth pulled before, let alone surgery.
Is there anything you can tell me to make me feel better? Tooth or non-tooth related.
Which song cheers you up the most?
Pls tell me things will be ok, and post adorable/funny pictures? I know I just posted a picspam post yesterday but I neeeeds some happiness
DK/DC: If you got Easter goodies this weekend, what was your favourite? (Family Sized bag of Mini Eggs, aw yeah)
What the fuck am I gonna do, TQC? I don't wanna take shitty classes that don't go towards a general degree anymore.
Also, I still haven't figured out what the fuck I wanna do--am still taking suggestions. What should I be, now that I'm grown up?
Who should be held responsible?
(I'm watching Bowling for Columbine - here is the scenario I am speaking about)
DK/DC/too depressing - What hair on your body do you shave, if anything?
What's your favourite or most used handbag like? What's in it?
What would/do you allow your children to do that your parents didn't allow you to do?
What wouldn't you allow your children to do that your parents let you do?
And why, if you will.
How about food that you can't stand?
Have you turned on your AC yet?
I have a perpetual headache, throbbing pain in my mouth, my mouth is swollen and inflamed and the toothache is giving me a fever and blurred vision.
I need all my wisdom teeth out and am awaiting the approval for my coverage. In the meantime my top left tooth has broken in two, exposing the root and got infected.
I can hardly function in the day at all anymore. Taking care of my son and my job is almost enough to kill me right now.
Is there anything I can do for my tooth? Help!
What do you do to make yourself feel better when you are horribly depressed/heartbroken?
Today I returned my horrible impulse purchase of those stupid Reebok Easy Tone sneakers, bought some panties at Victoria's Secret, and had cigarettes and Taco Bell.
has anyone ever been to roy thomson hall for concerts? and this may be a long shot but do they put up screens to show the stage, a la molson amphitheater?
Your first car?
Your first pet?
If your butt cheeks hurt, would you ask someone to rub them?
What would you ask this person to rub onto your butt so that it would feel better?
srs/non srs :o)
Do you like figs?
How do you like to eat/prepare them? (Recipes or suggestions welcome.)
Do you want some figs when they're ready?
Why is Limits of Control so boring? It's Jim Jarmusch AND Bill Murray!
Any particular genre?
Does it depend on the mood?
Do you think the music can set the mood?
If you're not into the sex talk, what about different music for different moods in general?
(Inspired by me sitting alone in the library studying, but listening to Robin Thicke on Pandora Radio. This is baby-making music right here...haha)
So I just got a used copy of Phantom Hourglass and I'm at the part with the spooooky Ghost Ship mist and it's not letting me get through the mist. I found the map, scribbled the path on my sea map, and even when I follow it, I get as far as the rocks and it resets back to the bottom.
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?
At what point should I be seriously concerned?
So today my coworker comes in and hands me this nifty recipe binder for me to fill with my favorite recipes..only I don't have any really awesome favorite recipes. :/
So, cooks of TQC, will you share one of your favorite recipes with me?
What online sites do you like to visit to find recipes?
I should steal my grandma's cookbooks, y/y?
How could I handle this situation better? I don't want to give up my friendship with my cousin, which would be my only option because I live with my mother.
AM I LEADING THIS GUY ON?
OH .... (delete)
If you could go on only one website for the rest of your life, which website would it be and why? Livejournal is not an option
( Collapse )
What's your favorite thing to do on a rainy day?
Read, watch a movie, take a nap, play with my awesome cat... and also being on the internet.
How's the weather where you're at?
It's 47 and rainy here. Gloomy shit!
I was cut out and feel that this is slightly ridiculous, especially since my mother passed away in the middle of the school year and I didn't even attend school, not to mention practice.
Should I try to contest my teacher's decision by going to a principal or vice-principal? Or should I just let things lie and forget about it?
which do you think would be more detrimental to your health?
Statehood for D.C., yes/no?
Personally, I'd rather they carve out Federal space for the White House, the National Mall, the Capitol, etc., and give the rest back to Maryland. Too bad neither D.C. nor Maryland wants this to happen.
How about taking a famous song and putting the chorus or the first lines of the song through Bad Translator, and then we have to guess which song it is?
And why do groups of them walk in a horizontal line really slowly (or come to a complete stop) in the busy parts of the city?
I've googled and all I can find is places wanting to sell the book or places that will only let me read one paragraph for free. Thanks in advance!
ETA: I think Google books is going to let me read it for free! Thank you for all the responses.
& if you don't like Woody Allen, who's your favourite writer/director, and what's your favourite film by them?
And the home gym equipment I'm looking at having would include a power rack, weight plates and "tree" to store them, and of course a barbell and dumbbells.
I'm really worried about the cats being able to knock a weight plate free and end up crushing themselves :( My mom and my sister think the cats will be fine, but I worry about it.
Can you tell me your craziest drunken story?
If not, how is the weather, party poopers? :P
From LJ as a whole?
If you didn't learn anything, what do you do when you're so hot that you want to tear your skin off?
wear footed pajamas with trains on them to the local grocery store everyday for the next year and shout "choo choo" complete with arm motions as you walk down the aisles
attend the funerals of 10 people you don't know in a hot pink mini dress, over the course of this year?
(as your opinion, not looking it up in a dictionary)
I am hung
( Collapse )
was it by accident or on purpose? was it your idea or did you find out about it later?
is it on the internet?
were you wearing panties?
*inspired by me stumbling across pictures of myself on some girl's facebook. I met her at a party. She took an upskirt picture of me (I was sitting on a couch and she was sitting across from me) AND posted it AND didn't even friend me! wtf LOL - and that's not even the only problem with it ...THERE ARE SO MANY RIDICULOUS PICTURES lol
I am glad I always wear panties with minis! Holy fucken fuck
What's the worst/best pick-up line you've ever heard?
Have you or anyone you've known ever even used a pick-up line?
How did it work out?
mine's "Sleep the Clock Around".
What on earth would cause this? Both Walmart's are in the same state but different towns.
How close do you live to an airport? How much time do you give yourself to check in before a flight?
Will you name your top five must-have cosmetics?
I'm a sucker for 1. My Cargo Hands of Hope palette 2. Revlon ColorStay foundation 3. Nars Orgasm blush 4. Urban Decay Primer Potion 5. Almay Lipstick in Bronze (which I can't seem to find anywhere!)
How do you organize your collection (pics are strongly encouraged)?
If you don't wear makeup or want extra credit, who do you talk to on instant messenger the most?
Panda, for sure.
(if you drive on the left on your country, please reverse the question)
do you have a boston terrier? if so, will you post a picture?
i see a couple in like ohnotheydidnt and beauty101 and i just approved SOMEONE'S POST at ontd_discussion despite it being the second post for that show. but maybe that was 'cause i didn't see the first. lol.
idk idk i always like to comment with like "Haaayyyy gurl" when i see TQCers in other communities. then find out they're boys. hahaha.
BONUS QUESTION: are you drinking tonight? 'cause i sure as shit am.
not people, but things.
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TOPIC TO PICK. The only thing off the table is the abortion debate! So, TQC, what do you think is the most interesting debate/argument happening in the world? It doesn't have to be big like abortion, just--anything, which kind of frog is best flycatcher, anything you think is interesting.
What are your plans for the summer?
[[I'm graduating in a month and want to watch some movies about people in college before I feel like I'm no longer part of that world. Weird? Probably, but that's how I roll.]]
What the hell is that website that rates how much ads are objectifying women? I've Googled it up and down and I can't think of it and it's driving me crazy. They had a section for good ads as well as bad ones. It's a really simple name.
What trite, overused expression would you like to strike from the language now?
Is this a bad idea?
When you gain weight, where does yours go?
Should I take summer classes and get some of my certifications (CPR, first aid, lifeguard) or spend the summer looking for a job/goofing off/partying?
What was the last thing you were pressured into doing?
this happened to me before with the same phone, and i put it in rice. this time around, it didnt shut off so i thought it was fine, but turns out it was acting weird. so then i shut it off and turned it back on, it was just like blinking and shit. i have it in rice.
problem is, all the websites tell me i shouldnt have turned my phone on and off or it short circuits it -_-
so my question is, have you ever had water damage to your phone? did you act like a moron and turn it on and off like me? did it still work afterwords?
if you dont know dont care, what cheap new phone should i get?? (i have verizon)
2.) What annoys you about your parents?
3.) Do you suggest running a half-marathon?
are you SUPPOSED to?
What television show can you not miss?
(.89 at aldi, The Daily Show and Bones)
How long have you played?
How often do you practice?
What kind of music do you play?
and, if you don't play an instrument, do you want to learn one? What kind of music would you play?
I made an appointment today to get my nails done, and then I realized later on that the nails might make it really hard/annoying to type - Already when my thumb nails get a little bit long I can sometimes find it really bothersome.
I see girls all the time with fake nails able to type on their Blackberry's, but I don't know how they do it!
So my question:
Have you ever wanted to make a food or beverage, or have you made food that you saw in a movie or read in a book? (excluding the obvious of cookbooks/cooking shows etc)
dk/dc how do convience my fam that im not bent?
i pretty much don't know anything about the area but i have gps on my iphone and 500 euro to spend while i'm here.
for those of you who have been here, what should i really go see or do?
What was the last thing you learned that you honestly could not believe?
If you speak a language other than your native one, how noticeable is your native accent?
I just found out today that my cinema techniques professor is French., after being in her class for 4 months. As in, was born and raised in France, lived there until college, speaking French as her native language. I never would have guessed in a million years. She has a perfect American accent, like she was raised in the middle of Illinois. I never ever ever would have guessed.
I am thoroughly impressed. How does she do it? How long does it take?
