How much do you spend on a bottle of conditioner? How long does one bottle last you?

How much do you spend on a bottle of conditioner? How long does one bottle last you?
If you have not, what's your favorite go-to dish at restaurants?
(Spend redundant capital on sanitation equipment, or save all that money, while having an unsanitary home)
DK/DC: What's your favorite section in the New Yorker?
Someone linked me to (NSFW) Lurid Digs the other day and I was honestly crying with laughter at some of the entries. Don't click if you have an issue with graphic images of gay men posing in badly decorated rooms. The best thing about it is the commentary which attempts to ignore the half naked men and instead focus on the bad interior decorating. My personal favourite is the discussion about an ugly attic that just happens to include a man suspended by his scrotum.
*What's the creepiest/most horrifying site that you've come across?*
Someone linked me to a site a while ago that is without a doubt the most disturbing site I have ever seen. It's even worse than the infamous "anorexicrecroom", which was a Not-Safe-For-Life pro-ana worship/kink community. Anorexicrecroom included pictures of a game I can only describe as "bulimic bulls eye" wherein emaciated bulimics tried to hit a target with their vomit. I kid you not :\
Yet this other place is far, far worse. It is the embodiment of Rule 34 and not in an ~OMG that is so disgusting hahaha~ way but rather in a ~jesus christ does Interpol know about this?~ way.
I actually contacted the federal police about the site because it's one thing to enjoy having someone pooh in your mouth whilst wearing a gumboot on your head and quite another to involve people &/or animals that are inherently incapable of consent. Unfortunately a google search shows that the place is still running :(
DK/DC? How was your weekend?
(sorry, my lj-cut didn't work)
I'm writing a paper on Color-blind Racism in Education, but I'm having a hard time coming up with an actual thesis/question/whatever.
For the sake of flexibility, Education can mean higher education or public education or whatever works best for you.
I am just at a loss and it is making me sad. I need to be more specific, but damn.
Maybe I should take a nap?
EDIT: oh right.
What would YOUR topic question be?
Should I take a nap?
I will try something different.
Never mind. :(
Do the words "bitterness" and "resentment" mean the same thing to you?
on a happier note: will you tell me the best thing that happened today, this week, and this month? and you can't say the same thing for all three. :P
What's the last song you had stuck in your head (youtube appreciated)?
How can I get this song out without replacing it with something worse?
I think The Devine David takes the cake in my opinion.

Do you like, love, hate, or ignore LOST?
If you've been watching religiously, how do you currently feel about the latest episodes?
Who are your favorite & least fav characters (dead or alive)?
Which character would you sex up?
Why do you think Kate isn't a candidate anymore?
If you could bring back one character that has died and kill off one that is alive, who would they be?
Will you just use this post to talk about LOST in general? Anything goes. Even LOST hatred. I don't care.
AND: A question google could probably answer, but I'm google-tarded: How many episodes are left?
Is that tacky, gross, creative? What do you think?
Three days now, and I'm still getting the calls.
I've called the police, but in the absence of a concrete threat there's not a lot they can do. The phone company either can't or won't trace the withheld number/unknown number that's calling me, and apparently the police brains trust hasn't been able to do it either.
I can't go and stay with my family. They're a couple of thousand miles away, so it could be awkward. Most of my friends who I'd trust with this are also a couple of thousand miles away, and the ones that aren't so far removed - like my neighbours - all have small children who I wouldn't particularly want to see caught up in this if it turned bad. Creepy Phone Call Person should not get his kicks from watching me and a four year old.
I'm home alone for at least the next month - just me, a cat and a dog who's well on her way to senility. It doesn't seem to matter whether I answer the phone or not. They call every four minutes like clockwork either way.
What can I do to make myself feel safer?
What can I do to actually be safer?
ETA: Changing my number could be difficult. That's the number my husband's command uses to get hold of me if something bad happens to him, and military red tape is very slow to recognise when something's changed.
(When do you get there, what do you do)
How do you stay motivated and tolerable on days when you don't have any interest in being there?
I've recently started seeing this guy who is six years older than me, and for whatever reason, when I sit down and really think about, it kind of freaks me out. How do I get over this?
TQC, this guy is so cute and sweet and amazing. Whenever I think about him, I get all giddy and excited and distracted. The problem is this whole situation seems to be interfering with my ability to eat. Yesterday, all I had to eat was some toast and yogurt, a few green beans, and a chicken thigh.
But then, at 4am this morning, I woke up with a killer tummy ache. Probably because my stomach was collapsing in on itself.
Do you get this way when you start dating someone you really like?
Any tips on getting myself to eat?
This post brought to you by my boss' pronunciation of "excetera" instead of "etcetera".
Lately I have been craving steak though. I had one saturday and I really really enjoyed it - something before I couldn't have even stomached. TQC why?? It's not an iron thing, I have high iron levels in my blood. So what is it?
srs and non-srs.
So someone organizes an Ice Cream Social at work (let's say it's an office). The best frozen custard place is hired to come on-site and set up "shop". Offered are three varieties ofthe creamiest, most delicious frozen custard ever with a few toppings such as chocolate sauce, sprikles, nuts and even fresh fruit. The custard is fresh made (that morning) and so is the fruit. This is quality stuff we're talking about. The table where they are serving is covered in a pretty little tablecloth with a couple balloons - all around well presented treat for the office. The cost to you is $5.00 - this happens every month through the summer. Are you in? If not, why not?
I need a new laptop. All I ever use it for is internet, and MS office suite. Would it be better if I got a netbook instead of a regular laptop? Would I be able to do what I need to on a netbook?
Any opinions from those who have made the switch?
I'm Catholic for one..but am not really involved in the church and wouldn't even want a church wedding (I'd want an outdoors one or something). My boyfriend is Athiest even..
Do you think she'll really make us do that? Am I wrong for thinking it'd be "wrong" for us to get married in a church where neither of us practice that religion? Am I being ridiculous and she was just joking, silly? Am I thinking too far ahead (ie: we're not even engaged LOL)?
I had a nightmare about his mom having all the say in our wedding planning last night...lolol
If this happened to you when you were actually planning your wedding what would you do?
DK/DC: What is your favourite type of chocolate?
Should I announce this somehow so everybody knows and can find me better in the search directory or should I just start using it?
How should I do it so I don't have explain myself? Nobody at work knows anything about this divorce.
Should I wear my old festival wristbands, or would that look try hard?
(A lot of people in the UK never take off old festival wristbands so I doubt i'd be the only one)
ETA: I know i'm overthinking, it just couldn't hurt to have a physical demonstration I enjoy this kind of thing, could it?
Also, I have already paid for a ticket, what do you think the chances of it being refunded are?
Do you enjoy music festivals?
For the guys: does this bother you too or do you just not care about your living situation?
Did you have any negative things happen with your order?
I am trying to find a dress to wear to a BBQ wedding at the end of this month, and something to basically lounge around in all summer, as well as wear to my rehersal dinner for my wedding in June. I am about 6 months pregnant right now. Which dress do you like?
( Collapse )
If not one of these, do you have a different inexpensive dress in mind that I should buy?
2. Y'know the fucking Sultan of Brunei and the other oil magnates - how do they work?
Does the light (skin, eyes, hair) vs. dark (skin, eyes, hair) issue exist within your racial group/ethnicity? It seems to have gotten worst in mine.
DK/DC: I'm marinating some chicken wings with buffalo bbq sauce. Should I bake it or grill it?
in the morning i usually dont have time to eat or am not hungry, and then around noon my stomach starts rumbling but i also feel sick at the same time :/ sorry if that makes no sense i tried my best to explain it.
DK/DC: what was the longest you've ever went without throwing up?
mine is 8 years.
Should I be apart of the class action and wait 4 years for my 20 dollar pay out or forget it?
Would you vote for this guy?
(Warning: video features a cowboy hat, a shotgun AND he's on a horse.)
i'm really quite happy. when's the last time you were really happy? what made you happy?
if you have the sads and are never happy, will you explain what it would take to make you happy right now? i will do my best to get it to you.
i just stumbled across the facebook of a girl i knew in drama class. she is now ridiculously hot and has a cute girlfriend. totally blew my mind.
Mine is McDonalds, and like once a week. I am ashamed.
2. How can I stop my unhealthy McDonalds habit?
3. My SO and I want to go see a movie tonight; should we see Robin Hood, Iron Man 2, or Kickass? Something else entirely?
4. What body part do you wash first in the shower?
What is your favorite savory food to eat?
What is your favorite spicy food to eat?

Does there need to be a conversation about this?
Do you think that having sex on the first date sets a bad tone for the rest of the relationship?
What's the best relationship advice you've ever been given?
How long have you been with your SO?
Where did you meet? What's the worst place you've ever met someone you've dated?
Do like your boobs, if you have them?
2. Did you get an allowance as a kid? How much? Did you have to do chores for it, or was it just given to you?
your mind is not your own
your heart sweats, your body shakes
another kiss is what it takes
You can’t sleep, you can’t eat
there’s no doubt, you’re in deep
your throat is tight, you can’t breathe
another kiss is all you need
Whoa, you like to think that you’re immune to the stuff, oh Yeah
it’s closer to the truth to say you can’t get enough,you know you’re gonna have to face it, you’re addicted to love
How can you tell if you're addicted to love?
If so, would you ever consider getting rid of it?
If not, why not?
Should I have another slice of cake? Today I just don't want to eat real food it seems. Yummy cake.
What do you eat when you know you need to (pregnant, sick, ect) but aren't hungry for actual food?
I live in Texas and there are signs and billboards down here that advertise a variety of things and all seem to begin or end with the words “Texas Style”.
Examples: Wilderness Safari “Texas Style” and All You Can Eat Buffet “Texas Style”
What kinds of things pop into your mind when you see or hear “Texas Style”?
Does any other state do this?
What is currently stressing you out?
Do you have somewhat of a high-strung personality or do you tend to be more laid back?
" Forcing tax-payers to spend money to advertise that group in elementary school text books, and holding parades with music and clowns, can only be intended to confuse 10 year-olds to set them up for molestation at age 13 when the body starts to overtake fragile reason. Only children, not adults, are swayed by clowns. Responsible members of that interest group would agree, and have a duty to step forward and say so.
To make it worse, some judges have joined-in and actually ordered text books for children to include pictures of same-sex couples, and have even ordered adoption agencies to hand-over innocent children to them. What chance do those children have to grow up healty? What chance do yours? Those too young and innocent to know what life is about can, by one molestation, be emotionally crippled and denied the greatest joys of life, forever."
1. Were clowns created initially to molest children?
2. As an adult, have you ever been swayed by a clown?
3. Are parades just thinly-veiled events engineered to touch children inappropriately?
4. Can pictures of same-sex couples utterly ruin a child's chances of growing up healthy? Do gheys have so much power?
5. Are clowns and gay people responsible for most of the world's child molestations?
6. If so, are there more clowns than we think or are they working around the clock to meet their quota?
7. Is a gay clown 200% more likely to grope the young 'uns?
8. Would you vote for Mel to keep our children's privates away from the roving reaches of circuses and bathhouses?
-take it at a community college close to me with an instructor who has no rating on ratemyprofessors.com
-take is at a community college farther away with an instructor who has a pretty high rating on ratemyprofessors.com.
what do you think, folks? which one should I sign up for?
For example, if we're going out of town for a wedding my manager will write "Out of town for a wedding" in the schedule for all the store to see as opposed to simply writing "on vacation" or "out of town". My coworker didn't feel comfortable having this information shared with the store.
Is it inappropriate for our manager to do this? If we specified that we didn't want all our coworkers to know why we were taking time off would we be justified in doing so?
Does it embarrass you when you're carded for stupid shit?
What is your favorite sexual position? What's the most sexually adventurous thing you've ever done.
Games like Ranch Rush, Deadtime Stories, Cake Mania etc etc. I'm trying to find a new game because I've either finished or am sick of my current ones.
What is the attraction to you, your deep desire, to own such a bag?
I'm not judging (much), this is just something I've never understood.
or will we sink further into the depression that were already in?
However now with two kids I am alot more terrified at the though. My mom will live close and might see me 2 times a week. But other than that I am going to be by myself. Is there anything I should do to help keep me and my family safe? Do those alarm systems work, and are they worth it?? Can you give me any advice on what I should do/or avoid??
2. What does the dixie/rebel flag stand for to you? (Or whatever its called..) I never saw this flag in Texas but ever since moving to Georgia I see this everywhere! On people's front lawns and on their cars.. I dont really know much about the flag to be honest. But I had several people tell me it was a sign of racism. Is this true? I ask beacuse after hearing that I did notice every single person showing this flag was white. And my soon to be neighbors had the flag flying in their front porch.
what do I do now?
Also, I'm finding it really hard to sleep well just lately - suffering from midnight melancholy, restless legs and wildly-swinging sleep patterns. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to deal with this? It's late spring in my part of the world and my bedroom has a tendency to get hot and dry, could this have anything to do with it?
Ex-neighbour stories also welcome.

What do you call a word that is both singular and plural? Meaning, it is spelled exactly the same regardless of whether it is singular or plural -- words like "money," "fish," "deer," et cetera?
Which sentence is correct?
Back-owed child support, called arrearages, is considered a legal debt that may not be discharged.
Back-owed child support, called arrearages, are considered a legal debt that may not be discharged.
Or something else entirely?
Edit: a friend is saying I should say this:
Back-owed child support, called arrearage, is considered a legal debt that may not be discharged.
But initially said the first sentence is grammatically correct.. and the first sentence sounds best to me. What do you think?
I was thinking of mailing her parents a little report card/progress report for this year.
Is this a dumb idea?
Anything in particular I should include?
I would also like to use the parents are references. Do I ask them in person/email/letter? (I only see them about once a month if that)
This kid got in trouble in school because he ate his noodle with both fork and spoon
They didn't really explain how he ate it. I'm assuming he pushed the noodle into his spoon(which can get messy and annoying) instead of twirling it into a ball with his fork first. Because really, people, what is so wrong about eating noodle with for and spoon?
On another note, how do you eat pizza? Bare hands or fork and knives?
My uni course are running a trip to see Seth Lakeman (awesome folk singer) tonight. EVERYTHING (but the cider!) is free.
I just dropped my bowl of soup and spilled it all =( I really wanted to eat that soup and now there's no more left.

it's not an argument heard so much about men fathering dozens of children, usually only couples who have like nine kids. what's up with that?
In 12 days, I am leaving for Portland, Oregon. I've spent quite a bit of time there -- my husband is from Newberg -- but it's been awhile. I'm going to be reuniting with him there, and I have a hotel downtown.
So I know Portland fairly well, and have all the standard stuff on my to-do list (Pearl, Powell's, Saturday market, etc.) Can anyone offer some suggestions and reviews of really cool, unusual restaurants, or good nightclubs, or less-known touristy things, or under-appreciated shopping areas or stores, etc.? Any good events happening between May 29 and June 1? We'll have a car so while staying inside Portland is best, we're not opposed to heading out to the suburbs.
Also! I'm taking Amtrak there. I've never been on a train before. I'm pretty excited -- it's even cheaper than Greyhound is up here and with a dining car! What's Amtrak like to travel long-distance?

If you could erase from the world entirely just ONE stereotype, what would it be?
There's a catch, to erase that stereotype, you must create another that will become instantly popular, what is it?
*I know that no stereotype is harmless because there is always going to be some type of privilege or discrimination behind it. But ignore that for a second and let's just have some fun, mmkay?
DISCLAIMER: Stereotyping is bad. Don't do it. Except now b/c I'm asking you to.
Please don't say crab cakes. Bleh.
If not, what do you think? Are the parents right in saying that it's not at all sexual? Do you feel like this was really inspired from Alvin & the Chipmunks movie?

Do you do that sometimes?
2. Do you have any nicknames? If so, what are they?
Edit: Mention what the job is, if you like.
If you don't want to post a haiku, how's the weather today?
The small college city I live in is having a city council meeting and will most likely vote on anti-discriminatory laws based on sexual orientation tonight. If it passes, we'd be the second city in Utah to have laws that protect the LGBT community. I was asked by a couple people to go and support these ordinances. Even though I strongly favor this, I didn't attend since it's an issue I get very emotional about. I'm watching this live on our community channel, and some of the opposing arguments are just ludicrous.
ETA: It passed!
2. Who were you surprised to find out was gay? (Famous people, preferably) I had friends who were shocked to hear that Stephen Fry was gay! (Having said that, when I was young and naive, I had to call a friend just to double check that Graham Norton was gay...)
3. Where does the phrase 'I see you're gangster. I'm pretty gangster myself' come from? My googlefu is failing me.
Me: I got all As! I didn't expect that so it's even more exciting.
Who do you include in your references on your resume -- as in, what is their relation to you? Former employers, professors you worked extensively with, etc...? I teach music and I'm wondering if asking a few of my kids' parents who have seen me work if they would be a reference for me. Is that a faux pas?
Please recommend me some music? =)
Any kind would be appreciated
I've worn out my music library
or made you cry?
If this question does not apply to you, what is your favorite song of all time?
What's your favorite TV show?
are you wearing underwear?
are you hungry?
Have you ever gone to an event/movie/etc that you really didn't want to for the same reason?
I have this weird thing where I love my messy room (to a point). Things seem easier to find when they're all over the place. But when I get the urge to clean it, I can't figure out where to begin so I lose the motivation.
How can I make friends?
How do some people have so many online friends?
What is your opinion of people with no friends?
Would you be my friend?

Also, what song are you listening to right now?
If vacationing while pretending to be a spy doesn't appeal to you, who would you like to pretend to be on vacation?

TLDR and/or DKDC: Do you enjoy word or number puzzles such as crosswords, word searches, sudoku, etc?
Have you ever had a decrease in sex drive because you weren't being satisfied during sex? It's a bit confusing to me, since in my mind, your sex drive should double to compensate for it.
ALSO WOULDN'T THESE BE LOVELY NAMES FOR TWO KITTENS?!
So, tqc, what should our safe word be?
What did you eat for dinner?
Have you ever lost or gained a significant amount of weight? I've gained a good 60 lbs since high school :\
The inside is purple!
A guy and girl where arguing and they were in a sort of relationship, he decided to say...
"you only like me because I am broken, you like to think you can fix things"
I could have the quote wrong but that was the gist of their conversation
I am thinking buffy and spike...but for some reason its just not clicking with me.
Who can help me figure out where its from?
Comedy. Half hour. Think, Everybody Hates Chris-like.
Now, for the fun part: Who would play your nuclear family? mother figure, father figure, siblings, and any step-relatives. Base it entirely on physical features, not the actor/actresses typical characters. Pictures an obvious plus.
Also, have any of you ever flashed your phone to a different service? How'd that go? How'd you do it?
I just got an awesome phone but Verizon is KILLING me, so I'm switching to Cricket and I want my awesome phone to come with me.
I've been stressed out lately and I think I want to take a mini vacation and go to a spa, but I've never been, so I'm totally clueless.
Links are a plus.
