Does it matter that I got my braces off about 4 years ago?
Who is your favorite? Or do you just hate all of those bitches?
if you don't know what the fuck I'm talking about, what's your favorite thing to do in Cabo?
Do you like the European Union?

Inspired by finding out my cousin's husband is hiding her pain medication from her because he 'doesn't want her to get addicted." wtfwtfwtf
how do you style your hair on a regular basis?
I'm ace at cracking eggs.
I am really hyper i already made some fudge and buckwheat cookies and now im making a comic book wallet. have at it with the craft project sites and ideas!
I volunteered at an aquarium for 7 months working directly with penguins. I loved it, loved the birds, etc. But I've developed very bad eczema from it and stopped volunteering two weeks ago. It makes me sad but it was affecting my health way too much.
Do you get easily scared at movies? What was the scariest you've ever seen?
DK/DC: If you turn to your right and take a step, what would be the first thing to impede your path?
Books and a binder
Do you include that name when asked for your full name in writing or aloud?
Will you post a link to your favourite recipe? It can be for anything.
Stay up until I get tired?
Go to a Walgreens and get some Nyquil?
Just try to sleep and see what happens?
Also, if I make this phone call I'll probably end up more anxious...but I can't stop thinking about it. Should I just call or leave it be?
will you tell me about your most physically painful experience in life?
Did you train younger siblings to do strange/embarrassing things?
If you're an only child, what would you have gotten a younger sibling to do for the lulz?
I idolized my older brother, so it didn't take much effort for him to 'train' me, lol. When I was 9 or 10, he taught me that when I saw a police car/officer/anything I was to yell, "It's the popo! Duck!" and hide. Mostly I did this in the car if we saw a police cruiser etc. But once, the FBI had come to my house for some internet-related thing. My mom brought my little brother and I out to say hi, the FBI-man went to shake my hand, and I.. did as my older brother had instructed. My mother looked like she could have died on the spot.. And thus, that habit was quickly broken.
What should I get her for our anniversary?
What odds are you giving me that we make it to 25??
What is the possibility this tremdous cloud of ash is going to ruin one or both trips?
I'd choose subtlesphinx
I'm supposed to drink 48 oz of water one hour before the ultrasound. It's at 3. When should I start drinking it?
Either it's too sporty or too grandma-ish.
Don't know or care, have you discovered any new music lately? What was it?
He met my sister briefly ONCE, and he writes on her facebook wall to see how things are going, and comments on her pictures. He recently commented on a photo of my sister and I (posted on her album) saying, "sexy!" I recently wrote "Happy Birthday mom!" as my facebook status, and he marked it as "like." In fact, he does this for many of my status posts. Also, I'm of Korean descent, and after I broke up with him, he went to teach English in Korea (of all the countries in the world he could have gone to). And now he tries to write in Korean on me and my sister's walls.
I mean, we're still friendly, but I don't go out of my way to talk to him while he always tries to keep in touch. Does this potentially indicate that he's still into me and trying to stay "close" via the internet?
Should I skip class to see the Flaming Lips?
ETA: Told my friend I'm not going, I'm going to be responsible. =/
...do you think I would be able to quietly sneak off with the grade he already gave me without completing the work? Is this a dick thing to do? Also, I lent him a really interesting, out-of-print book about post-mortem photography that you can't find anywhere for less than a hundred bucks. If I just let him keep it, do you think that will make up for it?
ETA: lol I already decided to do the work, this was really just a roundabout way of seeing if my mother gives me horrible advice sometimes. RESULT: SHE REALLY, REALLY DOES.
I try to alternate but my bf always complains when I pay lol. I complain when he pays.. SHEESH.
I keep stealing the bill from him and running to the front lulz.
DK/DC: how early do you get up on weekends/days off?
Taking a job in a field you're somewhat interested in to make some money and gain some professional experience,
Going back to school for 2 years to prepare for a career (in the same field as the one above, but a different division) that you're pretty sure would make you happier than the aforementioned option.
What does this mean?
What's one thing you wish you'd learned about in college? (undergrad)
Don't know or care, will you describe your favourite dessert?
 non-serious or serious welcome. I'm curious.
How can I get this thing uploaded?
Details to consider:
- Microsoft Office Works 7 doesn't count, apparently. Nor does Notepad or Wordpad.
- I can't download anything.
- My google-fu is failing.
Do you have any funny school stories ?
My long-term boyfriend dumped me yesterday. I feel sick, haven't eaten since then, and still have to study for finals this week. Yadda yadda, I'm a mess.
The thing is, I told him not to contact me, that I would contact him when I was ready to talk. The thing is, this really blindsided me - Friday night he spent 300$ on plane tickets so I could come visit him as soon as my exams were over (we're long distance right now), Saturday he was texting me asking for pictures of the two of us asking so he could put them as the background to his phone, Sunday morning he's still telling me he loves me - and by Sunday afternoon he can't deal with this relationship anymore. And all I want to do now is call and ask him why. I know it's a bad idea to call right now, I should give both of us time off- but how long do I have to wait? I have to admit, I'm still holding onto hope that this can be salvaged, and I don't think I can even try to let go of that until I talk to him again.
As a side note, my next final is on Thursday, so Wednesday night is off limits.
tl/dr: My bf dumped me, how long do I have to wait to contact him?
Other: Post things to make me happier? I need to study, and I can't.
If there is a giant pile of dishes/pots/pans/mugs/mysterious containers/possibly food in a sink, are you the type to roll up your sleeves and tackle it or would it not bother you and you'd just let them chill?
Obviously, if you live alone, this doesn't apply. Clean your own fucking dishes. Or don't.
You can include a picture of your sink, if it's especially interesting/disgusting.
I swear this guy smells like 100 gallons of stale piss
and this is on top of the regular overly smelly dudes
I like calling them the po or the po po. Like "oh man, the po po gonna get you!!!"
How do you maintain your relationship to make sure it doesn't fall apart?
So, TQC, who sent it to me, and what is it?
i am meeting with my professor today to see if he will give me extra credit to bring up my grade. i will pass the class definitely but the max i can get at this point is a B- and i am one of those assholes who is unhappy with anything except an A- or above. WILL HE LET ME DO IT?
What sort of socks do you prefer?
What are my options?
Any innovative ideas out there for me?
Where did you find your apartment? Craigslist is always the same, either too nice and expensive or too cheap and shady. Does driving around and looking actually work? I don't know. I spent all my savings moving here the first time, I basically don't have any money and will have to sell things to make a deposit.
What was the last thing that made you want to throw up your hands and give up?
I get a little error sound and this message comes up: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel."
Um...WTF? I'm pretty sure I have the programs. Seeing as I use them almost every day.
Recently my computer's been sick with this weird-ass "Windows Security Center" virus, and I think that might have something to do with this. Have any of you had that virus? <strike>it's fucking impossible to get rid of</strike>
Luckily I opened up Word before this started happening, but now I need Powerpoint and I can't get in it. :(
fml fml fml.
What allergy medication do you take?
Do you have a lot of photographs taken of you with your SO?
My SO and I have been together for almost five years. When he was making a memory book for my 25th birthday he realised we do not have a lot of photos featuring the two of us.
For those without a SO (or anyone really):
Do you keep photographs of a SO once the relationship has ended?
There's a photograph I have which I look really nice in. Unfortunately it's with my ex-SO which was a bit of a dickhead. So it's buried at the bottom of a drawer.
What was the worst "favor" someone did you without asking you first?
Has that ever been an issue?
And since pictures are always fun, will you post a picture of you and your best friend?
do i suck it up and power through it? or is there a way to make my book smell less disgusting?
it seriously smells like it's rotten or something. and it's new, so i don't know what's going on.
DK/DC: would you tell me about a cool place you've been to?
all i get when i go to the site is a black page with local UO store address'. it's been like this for months.
if this is normal, anyone know why the site is no longer working?
( Collapse )
Do you think facial hair is sexy?
ETA: How old are you?
My SO is six years older, my last ex was 9 years older. Pretty much everyone I know is significantly older or younger than me. It's not a big deal to my friends/family, but my mom's friends thinks it's weird/unsafe for some reason?
I have a facial hair fetish.
It currently only has one song on it: Choices Made by Good Riddance.
What songs should I put on that playlist, TQC?
Why did my neighbor think it was okay to take my cat to the SPCA and THEN call us hours later to tell us about it? Why didn't she just call us in the first place?
I now have to pay the SPCA $50 for watching him for the night. >:(
Are you angry about anything?
Will you post links or write any relevant gossip that you know to bring me up to speed?
whats the biggest thing happening with you this week?
will i have an actual break before finals? :(
I'm looking for something that I can keep a food journal and will keep track of the calories for me, track my exercising and how many calories I've burned, and that can output estimates for me about the progress I'm making and where I'll be in the future. Recipes for weight loss would be an added bonus.
I made a list of the cutest animals because I was bored.
What has your day been like so far? What did you do?
I need help with this - please decide for me whether I'm rightfully worried or just a hypochondriac.
4 days ago, on Friday, I fell down the stairs in my house. Long story short, I thought the stairs went upstairs when they went downstairs (don't ask), which lead to me tumbling 30 steps down the stairs.
It hurt a lot the first couple of days, especially my knee, so yesterday I finally decided to go to the ER (in Silkeborg, where my dad lives because I was visiting him yesterday), just to be sure. The doctor checked my knee and he told me that I just needed to take 3 painkillers every 6 hours and then rest my leg for a couple of weeks until the pain goes away.
The pain has, however, increased since and the 2 painkillers work for about half an hour and then... nothing but pain. I can't walk because of the pain in my knee, so I'm tied to my bed.
I obviously don't want to overdose, so taking more painkillers won't be an option. I'm considering going to the ER again, this time in Roskilde (which is in the other end of the country) where I live, to ask for some stronger painkillers and some crutches. My mom doesn't like that idea though, since she believes that I should just do as the first doctor said.
So, help me, TQC. The pain is unbearable and I can't do anything but cry, because I'm not able to move, but I do see what my mom mean. I also have school (and what we're doing this week is pretty important, since it's just before exams and graduating and what not)
What do you think I should do? Go to the doctor or don't go to the doctor?
Anyone else: what is your favorite feature on your phone? Or favorite app for iPhones?
For those of you who have been college freshmen, were you educated about school loans (if that applies in your country) and how so?
If so will you tell me about it?
Anyone have experience with using the clear stamps from Stampology? I'm doing my sisters invites for a party and they a pain...I have a different design than pictured, I just can't seem to get the hang of it. Tips?
ETA: I was asking to compare/contrast the book with the movie. I have been out of school for some years, so this is definitely not a homework question. I saw 1984 was on OnDemand and was wondering what people thought of the book vs. movie.
Australians do you have any thoughts on Carl Williams being dead?

Do you have any advice? What were some questions that you got asked a lot during your interview experiences?
city, state, zip
is that correct?? do i need to include the department as well?
here we're having : pasta with meat sauce and salad and garlic bread
What do you think that well-formed formula says?
Is that a good example for a lecture demonstrating how to generate natural language using first-order logic?
I brought $1100 in rolled coins to my bank and they refused to take them. I was just wondering if I could go make a big stink and they'd be forced to, or if they actually are allowed to not accept them.
I've been told yes from some, and no from others. When I try to google it, I only find information on cash deposits over $10,000 being reported to the IRS, and that doesn't help me at all.
What do you think is different about the minority of people who prefer to read non-fiction, as compared to the majority who prefer to read fiction? Do they just have a disinterest in escapism? Are they typically "intellectual" types? Are they more serious people?
I'm a lifelong reader of non-fiction, all the way back to elementary school. So far in 2010, I've read a dozen nonfiction books and one comic trade paperback and am reading my first novel of the year. This is pretty typical for me, but my reading tastes have always seemed very unusual compared to almost all my peers and I'm trying to understand why.
Do you get allergies that kick your ass and how do you cope with it?

What is the most important thing to you in a "romantic" relationship? Is this different from what is important to you in a friendship?
Is physical stimulation or mental stimulation more important to you in the long run?
And MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL, what is your favorite kind of cake?
I bought some Annie's Shells and White Cheddar because everyone always raves about how great their products are. It's bland, chalky, and not very cheesy at all. I'm pretty disappointed by it. I wanted it to be rich and cheesy.
What was the last thing that cheered you up?
My husband surprised me with chocolate truffles last night! Yay I love presents!
My stepmother absolutely loathes me but won't grow a spine and address her issues with me face-to-face; instead she constantly writes passive-aggressive notes or gets my dad involved and I can't handle people like that. I've gone from playing nice to being hostile and avoidant when she's around.
What's your living situation?
Any people in the Boston area, did you watch the marathon today?
Do you know anyone who ran in it?
Have you ever run a marathon?
I watched it with my sister and her boyfriend because his dad runs it every year. He's 55 and he is pretty damn fast, actually. I would die before I would ever finish running a marathon. & I had school off today, mostly because the marathon runs pretty close to my school.
What is the last spontaneous thing you've done?
I dyed my hair orange.
Have you ever pissed your pants in fright?
i also did about 20 minutes no sweat yesterday(well, i was sweating but the only reason i stopped was because i had to get the bus). what was wrong today?!
What did you have for dinner?

do you watch movies online?
I've been popping pimples for over a decade, but this kind of freaks me out. I only pop them when they're a whitehead, because I mean really, you have to then.
What's the last unnerving thing you heard about?
I had a root canal and crown done about 2 1/2 years ago. Out of the blue on Sunday I started having the same pains and symptoms I had years ago, all centered around the same tooth. I'm calling the dentist in the morning but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's infected again. I Googled and apparently crowns can leak and it's common to have to take the old crown off and get a brand new one. And of course, I cannot afford that.
If you're in school right now, when are your finals?
Have you ever gotten in trouble for it? ETA: What happened?
Do you feel bad when you say something that you know is going to piss someone off?
2- Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?
3- Who was the last person you went out to dinner with? What did you have?
4- When was the last time you had a run-in with the cops?
then later i'm biking home and i check my phone and he's called AGAIN, and he's left ANOTHER VOICE MESSAGE. and i'm thinking, this is so not Tom! how has he not gotten the picture yet?
HOW did this guy not realize he was calling the WRONG NUMBER ALL DAY?
yes, my voicemail is Alex Kapranos from Franz Ferdinand, so it was a man's voice, but he says, "Hey, this is Emily's phone and you better leave a message after the beep."
it's like... did he not listen? did he not notice he was Scottish?
seriously, how do you make that mistake three times?
also, how entertained would you have been? because me and my friend were tickled pink. i texted her about the third time and all she texted back was "Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha"
Does level of education/experience change what the best website is?

Edit: I'm babysitting tonight and the boy's dad was supposed to be home an hour and a half ago. I haven't heard a word from him. Should I assume the worst?
WHAT CAN I DO TO STOP BEING SO ANGRY???
(My mom is the cause of my rage so this is a complicated issue. ARGHHHHHHHH)
dudes, I'm so pissed. it feels like my heart is about to fall out of my chest.
Yes, I am always buying Marilyn Monroe/Audrey Hepburn posters.
Due to the above, I find myself overwhelmed with the number of Marilyn/Audrey posters (I just took stock). What do I do with them all? I do not have anywhere near enough room to hang them all.
DK/DC: what do your dishes look like?
I have these from Ikea.
I guess my question is should I be worried about the redness and the pulling?
I'm also worried that when I get my stitches taken out in the next few days that the still-forming scar will be pulled apart by the tension and I'll get a big fat scar instead of a thin one. Is there anything I can do to prevent it from stretching?
DK/DC: Does blood gross you out? This injury was huuuuge, like, gaping open and pouring blood and it was both totally awesome and a little scary for me.
i mean, it comes out to $7-$9/month.
I got my septum pierced tonight!
Was it out of character for you?
Ben & Jerry's Peach Cobbler ice cream. Mmmm.
Oh my god, can we go any faster?
Don't know or care, will you use this post to talk amongst yourselves?
do you think Peter Bjorn and John realized their initials were PB&J when they decided on their name or do you think it was just a coincidence?
if they did realize it, do you think it influenced their decision?
do you think they ever dreamed girls would be calling them peanut butter and jelly? 'cause that's what i do. today at work i went up to my friend, 'cause we'd been listening to Writer's Block in the car Friday, and i said:
"You know what I love about peanut butter and jelly?"
"Their Swedish accents."
Also I am by means no artist. Don't expect it to be a fucking Rembrandt.
If it was a talk show, what was the topic?
Which show would you like to be an audience member for?
I'm not an Oprah watcher but I'd love to be in her audience when she does her big giveaways.
It's currently 11:15 and it doesn't look like I'll be getting to bed anytime soon due to all the work I have to do. Getting up in time to go to that study sounds about as appealing to me as being stranded at Heathrow for two weeks straight. If I don't go, I won't have class until 11.:D
Will they come after me with shock generators and other instruments of torture if I don't show up?
What's on your to-do list?
If you're in college, do you go to class regularly? (If you're out of college-- did you?)
*Edit* I went to the study!
It was a lot of fun, actually.
My dad and I both do this a lot. It does occur to me that it's weird but at the same time... if I turn one of, my brain goes "but whyyyyyyy?"
Do you prefer keeping busy and having many things to accomplish, or do you favor having a lot of free time and ample opportunity to "stop and smell the flowers"?
What are your views on spanking as punishment?
