There is a cartoon or movie or video or something with a girl (?) and at one point she shouts, a little crazy sounding, "BEHOLD!" Of what we are supposed to behold, I don't recall.

Can you tell me what it was?

What's the minimum amount of money you'd ask for to have the guy, cheeks spread akimbo, tattooed over your stomach, with the gaping butthole aligned perfectly with your bellybutton?

Edit: what's the minimum amount of money you'd ask for to have the appropriate tattoos inked over your boobs to make them look convincingly like lotusboob?

Today my friend and I drew upside-down crosses on our foreheads, pentagrams on our palms, drunk loads of vodka and went to a church in China Town and rolled around on the floor.

TQC, ten years ago today my dad walked out of my life and left me in the hands of my mother, while I was watching "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?". (I was 8 at the time.)

I still can't get over it, despite the fact that I've been living with my dad again since 2007. How should I get over this?

dk/dc: what are your summer plans?

EDIT: non-srs answers appreciated, they'll cheer me up

so two carless people are going to the Oregon Coast this summer.  We are coming from Vancouver BC so we have to take the Amtrak train to Portland and then from there take a bus to the beach.   There is pretty much no way this is happening in one day so we have decided to stay a night in Portland and go to the beach in the morning.   Is anyone from Portland or has anyone been there? 

Do you know of any hotels you can recommend near the Amtrak station which is at 800 NW Sixth Avenue?   Otherwise, what would you recommend we do if we're there for about a day?

DK/DC/haven't been to Portland: savoury or sweet breakfast? snacks?   Coffee/tea/other?

Savoury breakfast for me..I used to like only sweet but it's changed.   As for snacks I like sweet ones.   Usually I drink Coffee but I go through tea phases and feel better while I do haha.  Having some tea right now.

If a friend of yours screws up royally, but you know it's because they took some lousy advice, do you feel bad for them or do you think they should have known better?

Does your opinion change if it was you who gave them the lousy advice?

Do you get annoyed when someone asks for your advice but then doesn't take it?

Somehow a sharpie got into my dryer. Obviously I didn't search my SO's pants hard enough or my three year old tossed it in there. How do I get black sharpie out of clothes? I had a bunch of the clothes I got as birthday presents in there and I really am stressing out over it. HELP!

I just googled and it says hair spray. Does this work?

UPDATE! Hair spray is working. I'm going to call and thank the people at TRESemme.

Inspired by this post...

If you were an asshole, or had a terrible romance novelist friend, what would your self absorbed personal description look like? 


"I'm conventionally hot with long reddish brown hair and velvety gray eyes. I have a tall, slim, white hourglass figure, and a small frame. I have the body of a model."

ETA, better example from reddressorblue :

"I am the glowing offspring of a Celtic warrior with shoulders to hold the cliffs of County Clare and an Iberian goddess. My body curves like the hills of Santa Teresa, my chocolate brown curls are like the knitting yarn of Jesus Christ himself. My farts are a sweet wind from the South."

1. Does anyone know how to fix power door locks? I can go into the whole story if needed. If not, does anyone know of an active car repair community on LJ (or elsewhere)? The people at the dealership have been less than helpful.

2. I posted a question last week about open bars/cash bars at weddings and got a lot of flak. The wedding reception I attended on Saturday had sodas for $1. The only complimentary beverages were water and coffee. Am I wrong to think *that* was a little rude? Am I stupid for opening up this can of worms again? I really only want to talk about the sodas, not the alcohol. =) Please be gentle. I really do love all of you.

 Pet owners, have you ever administered comfortis chewable tablets to your pets?  Do they have to ~~chew~~ it to work, or can they just ingest it?  My dogs don't really chew smallish things, they just kind of gulp it down or whatever.
I stopped by the vet because of Frontline not working, and he prescribed my dogs this stuff.  It almost seems too good to be true!  
Just wondering how any of your pets reacted.  :)

Say you're moving to a place on your own.  You don't have any furniture really because it belonged to the place or the other person/people living with you.  Would you buy furniture in anticipation of finding a place or would you wait until you found the place and knew the measurements etc?   If you bought some "necessary" furniture what would it be?

At a thrift store yesterday there was a vintage craft book I wanted *badly* (I collect them, mid 60’s-70’s), and it didn’t have a price tag. The thrift store won’t sell anything that doesn’t have a price tag, so I asked them to put one on it. As they were busy doing other things, they couldn’t tag it right away. I would have had to come back in the next day or so to check if the book had been tagged, at which point I would be able to purchase it. Well, i didn’t want to risk someone getting their hands on that book before I had a chance to get back there. So can you guess what I did? Yeah. I found a similar book (size and subject), snuck the price tag off of it, and placed the tag on the book I wanted to buy. I made absolutely sure I was paying fair price, or maybe even more than fair price. But it was still a sneaky act, one that the thrift store would frown upon.

So am I a turd, or do you think that what I did was okay?

Would you have done the same for something you wanted badly?

I just received a phone call from a number that I don't recognize and is not from this area. When I picked up and said hello, a man said, 'Yes. What do you need?' After a moment's confusion, I said, 'I'm sorry, do I know you?' and he said, 'Oh. Bye.'

What did he think I needed? How did he get my number? Should I call back and pursue this?

Have you ever been overheard or overhead someone having sex before? 
In either circumstance, was it awkward? Did you say anything to each other afterward? If it was a parent that heard you, did you get in trouble?

Inspired by my boyfriend and I just having sex when his dad was supposed to be gone for 45 minutes but came home way earlier and we didn't know until afterward that he was home. D: I'm too scared to leave the room now.

Your SO gets into a terrible accent ACCIDENT (wtf was I doing?) and suffers some pretty severe head trauma.

While in surgery, you discover your partner met someone else four months ago and started an ongoing affair with this person three months ago.

Your partner makes it through surgery, but suffers from retrograde amnesia; he/she can't remember anything from the past six months. As far as your partner is concerned, it's early December of last year.

What would you do? Would you stay with your SO?

Hey TQC. Sorry if you get this question a lot.

What cell phone carrier do you all use? What phone do you have through them? Do you like them? If you're comfortable telling me, what sort of monthly fee do you have? What features does that include? Tell me anything about your plan and phone!

My SO and I are moving to an area where our current cell provider doesn't have coverage so we need to pick somebody new. So far we have T-Mobile, Sprint, Alltel, Verizon Wireless and AT&T to choose from. Help me, guys, I'm so stumped.

Back in the eighties (circa 1983) there was this weird fad going on with all the guys at my elementary school. They'd take those 80's fat laces, tie them like ties and wear them around their neck. Seriously, one guy in my class wore so many he looked like the Mr. T of fat laces.

This lasted maybe 3 months, at most. Probably not even that long. I have Googled like crazy for this and have determined it was an entirely localized thing, because I can't find a mention of it anywhere. But I always assumed it was a pretty widespread thing prior to that.

Does anyone else remember local fads like that from their childhood? Did you ever think it was a widespread thing?

Trying to find a book

I read that the Tale of the Blue Crows by Zhou Shaomou is an online novel. I tried to find the website on Google, but all I found were news articles about the lawsuit.
I want to decide who's right for myself instead of having the information spoonfed to me. Where can I buy or view this book?
And if you can't find that one, how about Terra Incognita by Emil Malak?
I can't seem to find either.
I like ambitious fanfiction, and I like to read materials that have been appropriated from other writers, too.
So regardless of which one it is, I'd like to read it.
How can I download and/or buy these books?
