April 21st, 2010
If you don't, what are you excited about? I'm going to Boston for a Microsoft Office 2010 training, and my gas and food are getting paid for and I'm gonna spend the day there!
to make this a little more TQC friendly, if you're vegetarian, what made you decide to become one? any advice for a beginner?
We're doing mostly 90's, some early 2000's are okay. Yes, I realize this is not all that old!
What is "old music" to you?
I got home from class about an hour ago. I'm hungry. I want MEAT, but all we have is some ground beef. I usually think ground meat is pretty gross but MEEEEEEAT. Do want.
How can I cook it in such a way as to make it not be gross? Don't say meatburgers. Those are gross.
Vegetarians: Fear not, I shall murder a cucumber in your honor as well.
(I'm taking a few friends up to my cottage for a weekend in July. One friend decided to invite EVERYONE in my circle and even invited a few of his own friends who I don't know. I only have four spots so this is a huge faux pas and I'd rather give his spot to someone else, whose company I'd enjoy more.)
Favourite cottage-y things to do? If not cottage-y, then outdoorsy?
I'd never had toaster strudel before right now, and oh god, so good.
if you don't like 30 rock, will you show a funny clip from your favourite tv show?
I had my gallbladder removed today, and I can't sleep because it hurts like a biyatch to lay down. None of my friends are on Facebook chat and there's nothing good on TV. What's something vaguely productive I can do on the Internet until I'm tired enough to fall asleep sitting up?
What kind of compensation do you think that dude deserves for losing a ball to that moron doctor?
Has anyone you've ever known had serious complications from a fairly routine surgery?
A former coworker's sister went in for a hysterectomy because she had a malignant growth in her uterus. They did it laprascopically but had to tilt her at a weird angle and she's had collar bone dislocation, and three separate nicks on her bladder that have had to be repaired thus far.
DK/DC: What room are you in right now?
I'm in the family room
Do you also pay an inordinate amount of attention to hair (style, color, etc)?
I feel like hair is that one thing that determines 50-60% of your attractiveness right off the bat. Agree/disagree?
What do you think of the contrast between DARK, DARK HAIR on PALE skin? (NOT goth, but naturally occurring tones)
I just went on one and holy shit, she could not get her shit together. She couldn't figure out that I already emailed her my application. Worst, she was 2 1/4 hours late with me even though she *knew* I was coming in out of town. Then had the nerve to ask me what I rated myself on organization and time management.
i wish i had re-purchased my extra userpics earlier because now they've temporarily disabled the feature, i don't know when it will be available, and my extra userpics will expire sometime today. woe is me :(
How often do you get headaches?
How long have you been awake before?
How/why did you do it?
Do you ever type a question into the TQC 'Post an Entry' box/screen, read it over, and delete it because it's dumb/unnecessary/whatever? I was just about to ask something about the poster I have to make today, but decided I'll just figure it out once I hit the point of actually making the poster.
ETA: Is presenting at an undergraduate research conference as scary as it sounds? I feel like I'm not prepared for either of the sessions I'm in no matter how much time I spend on my material. :(
For everbody, has this volcanic ash cloud of death put a damper on your travel plans?
Is this volcano a pain in the ash or what?
Is the Ekfgelsrhgwoghwvnoghergprhg volcano effecting you in any way?
Should I just repaint it a boring white? Or try a better color? It has to be a light/subdued color in order to go with what the room will be like when we're finished. Think beach house. Think waspy.
I can use this to justify buying new tools Y/Y???
Has anyone you know online ever broken off all contact with you, but no one else, without explaining why? How did you get over that?
Which Game Should I play?
How has it been so far?
In general what magazines do you think a 60 year old man would like?
I'm now a proud PS3 owner. I started off with Metal Gear Solid 4, Assasians Creed 2, and God of War 3 for games.
Can you recommend to me some other good PS games?
Also, I want to get a ipod, can you recommend the best kind of IPOD as well?
It's really gloomy outside today. What does the weather look like around your area?
What do you like on your popcorn? EXTRA butter.
My boyfriend is mad at me and has completely closed up.
How do you like your tea?
I prefer my coffee with a shit ton of cream and sugar
What would you do TQC?
I want one of those giant fucking golden eagles from The Rescuers Down Under. I would never drive again. Edit: I also want a bantha.
What color? What is your natural color?
I woke up yesterday with a pain in the bottom of my foot that shoots up to the side of my ankle. I didn't wear uncomfortable shoes the day before, in fact I was wearing sneakers and it's different from any pain I've experienced while wearing shoes that don't fit or are too high.
I figured it would go away on it's own and I tried elevating it and taking Motrin and just not walking on it much but today I woke up and the pain is still there. It's making me walk funny because I get a shooting pain whenever I put any weight on that foot. What could this be? And how long should I wait to see if it goes away on it's own before I see a doctor or something?
No other part of either of my feet is hurting, it's just the right big toe, and it generally only hurts when I bend it, but right now, it's throbbing pretty good.
DK/DC/your toe is irrelevant to me: What is your favorite airline to travel on?
I am cosidering purchasing a used one.
Any factual input would be useful.
Don't fail me TQC

what's your "type"? Have you dated outside your "type"? good or bad?
My boyfriend and I were talking about how we weren't eachother's type but ended up being perfect for eachother
DK/DC: Do you lose things ridiculously often like me?
What shoes would you wear with this dress? I'd take a picture in a full length mirror but the colors aren't true so, sorry for my messy counter. It goes to my mid-thigh
What do you like in your pasta?
And one interesting fact about yourself........
how do you entertain yourself when you have to do really easy boring things but still have to look like you're paying attention to someone?
What should I have for dinner from this place? I'm not paying, so yay.
I went to my best friend for advice concerning whether or not to tell my boyfriend about an incident the other night where a mutual friend drunkenly and forcefully tried to make me sleep with him (he was unsuccessful and doesn't remember doing it). I felt like I shouldn't cause all it would do is make my boyfriend upset and angry and the bff said "yeah, probably keep this to yourself and just don't put yourself in that situation again." When I clarified that I meant no, my boyfriend would be angry with our mutual friend, not me, the bff said "oh, yeah. That too." o.O
Can you tell me the trick to making fonts look kinda 'trippy', like in this ( Collapse )
My professor promised to send a tutorial on it, but I don't think she's checked her e-mail, and I can't find anything online. I'm designing a 70's poster.
I'm talking with my student worker (she's 20) about my relationship with the husband. She's asking all sorts of questions, but the one she seems to be stuck on is, how can I know he's really the one if he's the only person I've ever been with?
So, what say you, TQC?
Should a person have multiple sexual partners before deciding on "the one"? Or should sex matter at all in the equation?
What creative way(s) would/do you describe an unlikely event?

Loved by women all around the world, and made in the UK by a multi-award winning ethical business, the Mooncup offers an end to the waste, discomfort and expense of disposable sanitary protection.
Are you planning on going to your ten year high school reunion?
Mine is this year and I am not really that interested in attending.
If yours has already past, did you attend?
Arrange my CD's the way I like!
Should I send each of them an email to thank them for their time?

If so, do you have any random advice you can give me? Things you wish you'd known when you were starting out?
I just realized yesterday that I do. I guess it's out of habit.
Inspiration is gone.
Does your place of residence have city water or well water?

Do you think it's more interesting if someone has voluminous, shiny waves to their hair..?

My question is:
Is it a good sign when she replies to my comments on her statuses, even though she really doesn't have to?
[The friends I've mentioned this to say it is.]
DK/DC: Ventriloquist dummies, yay or nay?
My answer: nay. So much.
Are the ladies of TQC ON THE RAG?
Don't know, care, or aren't affected by monthlies, how was your day?
How much of the time do you work and how much do you slack off?
Is it easier for you to work the middle, beginning or end of the day?
(I ask because at the end of the day- say the last half an hour to forty five minutes I find it really difficult to work)
Do you like your job?
how often do you buy new ones? or... how do you know it's time to buy new ones?
what color are they? do you have a matching set with the hand towels and washclothes and all that?
Have you known any hoarders in your life?

How long do you think you could go without sex with your partner?
Have you been depressed?
Are periods gross?
It took me forever to get that ETA meant "edited to add."
Or is it just a bunch of bullshit?
ETA: IA with most of you, no amount of positive thinking can give you everything you want.
My friend recently got this amazing job and she's convinced it's because she imagined getting the job and it was the "law of attraction" that did it. I'm trying to convince her that there was no Xenu or whatever God they believe in that "helped" her.
She's starting to get overly obsessive, and it's driving me nuts
do you think internet free speech is important?
what age group are you in? (13-17) (18-24) (25-32) (32+)
do you use any other internet social network? (Facebook, Tumblr, Myspace)
and..uh..well if you dont wanna help with that..
if you saw a poster about a free speech rally on say..a bulletin board somewhere..what would catch your eye?
what do you think?
ETA: ok so i know water is wayyy more important than free speech, but hey..i couldn't think of anything when i wrote it so i thought of necessities and what not. thanks for the input though!
oh and free speech on the internet is like..do you think it should be monitored by the government or anything..and do think moderators of communities are fair or things like that..
Don't you hate it when your eyes are closed or half-closed in a picture?
I always feel like a dumbass when I'm the only one who can't keep their eyes open. Geez.
Ceiling is kinda vaulted with a flat top. (I dunno the word for it.) like this! / \ But with a line connecting the top points. (excuse my lameness)
Am I just desperate not to decide between these colors and am forcing this into disaster? Is there anyway I can have both?
I have this stupid 3 page paper (i know, that's nothing) and I feel like I've covered everything I need to in a page and I can't think of how to stretch this shit out anymore. D:
DK/DC: Who is your favorite Victoria's Secret angel?
Girrrrrrl. You must be a mirror because I can see myself in you.
How do you tell someone who you don't know very well but is close with your mutual friends to stay the fuck out of your business?
did you ever think you had a battle with depression, but didn't get diagnosed or helped? how'd you get through it?
this has been going on and off with me for a long time now, but for the past few months i can't remember a time i've been truly happy for a good amount of time. unfortunately, i'm stubborn, and wish i could just fix this myself. bleh.
If so, what are your go to songs that you always play?
If you don't have go to songs, what would you play this second if I gave you a dollar and you got one choice?
I always play "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz and "Lay All Your Love on Me" by Abba.
Which TQC member will you choose to become a new mod of TQC?
Right now he really wants the Xbox 360 Elite Console for $299, but that's definitely extravagant and would probably make him feel uncomfortable because he could not reciprocate.
I thought of giving him a gift card for half the amount as an early birthday present, but I hate giving gift cards.
He also wants an alarm clock that holds and plays music from your ipod.
Are there any accessories with the Elite Console I can give him? Or should I give him a gift card? Or is there anywhere I could buy it at a discounted rate?
TQC, what do I need to furnish my apartment with? I've got stuff like a bed, couch, nightstand, TV, and dining room set. What other furniture am I missing?
I only have 7 songs on a playlist I just made and don't want to waste a disc on just 7 songs.
What is a must have on my mix?
Does anyone know of a good drag show? Mom and I really want to go, and I enjoyed a drag revue I went to in Seattle, but Google is giving really unhelpful answers.
If you do not live in the LA area:
What's the best kitschy fun you can have in your town/city? Schlocky tiki bar? Hokey tourist attraction? What? Also plz mention your locale.
What are your favorite euphemisms for death or dying, simple or overly elaborate? I'm a big fan of "the great divorcer forever" or "the great big Not-Coming-Back".
what do you do to not be sad? what distracts you? Should I sleep? or watch a movie? should I watch Iron man? Closer?
Will you post a screeshot of your computer screen as it looks RIGHT NOW? No closing things to make yourself look less like a loser or a creep. k.( Collapse )
If you wear glasses, how hard was it to find frames that you liked? I just exchanged mine today, and I'm not 100% sure I'll be sticking with my new ones... maybe I'm just too picky.
Do you consider the two to be the same thing?
Will you please share with the group some art by you?
Serious and non serious appreciated. :)
DK DC: Do you always read all the comments left on one of your posts?
If so, how long after the workout do you get it?
I make resolutions at the start of every month. I get really excited about the new month, then I usually forget about the resolutions and have broken them all by the second day. So then I start planning for next one. It's like my hobby.
What would you like to change about yourself?
hell no. I tried it today and I swear.
I'm having car issues and the local garages here can't fix the problem, so I have to take it to the dealer 20 miles away. The problem is that the car doesn't go more than 10mph right now and the road to the dealer is largely a 60mph speed limit.
My boyfriend seems to think it is perfectly safe to drive that distance going 10mph, but I don't. Do I risk it anyway? I don't know anyone anywhere that can tow it.
I'm firmly convinced that my fundamentalist Christian, right-wing office manager is actually a demon. I can't get Sam & Dean on the phone, what do I do?
I'm running out of holy water!
Does it matter how much it is?
Have you ever found any and how much was it?
How often do you wear makeup? For those of you who wear it all the time, do you feel very unattractive without it?
Do you always brush your teeth before going out?
why am i not excited about my birthday tomorrow?
What were your favorite kids show of the 80s and 90s? Educational preferred, but we're taking all suggestions.
Which of these 7 intelligence traits do you think is your strong point?
note #2: rum drinkers: ever had bundaberg?

(been working with [bundy+brekky juice] or straight bundy recently)
1. Laverne and Shirley
2. Reading Rainbow
3. Fraggle Rock
4. Sailor Moon
5. Fresh Prince of Bel Air
Whats the last incredibly uncoordinated thing you did?
do you like group projects?
dk/dc/not in school: do you play games on PC? whats your favorite?
I ask because I notice a lot of people seem unwilling to listen to stuff I like. (Trance, Industrial, etc) Or, if they do, they'll listen for 10 or 15 seconds and then say to turn it off. My ex wife was (in my mind) notorious for refusing to listen to anything that wasn't country music. (Which was 100% of my music collection at the time.)
If yes, will you post a pretty picture for the group?
What got you into running? How long have you been running? What's the best thing about it? What kind of goals do you set for yourself?
I've always wanted to be a runner, or at least be able to sustain a run for more than a minute. I am a fatty but I've been working hard at it and the past few days I've noticed my stamina has significantly increased since I started exercising daily two weeks ago. I love being able to move and I love the feeling of doing myself a favor through fitness.
Another question: since I started working out, my feet have looked AWFUL. It's not because my shoes are a bad fit; it's just that I'm spending a lot more time on my feet and they aren't used to the abuse. It seems like every day I find a new blister or callus in a weird place. If you run/do other stuff on your feet on a regular basis, do you have this problem? What can I do to make my feet look nicer? Ped Egg? Moisturizer? Different socks?
DK/DC/TL;DR: I have bad acne and since I got off Accutane, my pimples have started leaving permanent red blemishes on my face. Has anyone else had this problem? What can I do to get rid of them? I've heard vitamin E oil is good for that but I'm worried that it'll clog my pores and lead to even more pimples. Aggghhhh I hate my dermatologist and I'm going to look for a new one this summer.
also, omg this song.

dk/dc who's your celebrity dream date?
How much money do you make?
Do you think it's enough?
What do you spend your money on?
I'm watching the 1st season on Netflix. I'm lovin' the early 90s hair.
