He didn't have anything on him (ID, SIN, Health Card). Do I need to find this and bring it for him? I don't know where any of this stuff is. He doesn't use a wallet and he puts it wherever, but he always knows where it is.
I'm waiting for my mom to get here to watch our son but I'm having a panic attack and I don't know if I need to bring anything?!
I've been noticing this...
- i am trying to surprise my friend by getting a whole bunch of people to donate to his page for the walk for ALS (he lost a parent to it). will you donate/spread the info if i give you the link?
Lady Gaga's Fame Monster, Ke$ha's Animal, or Backstreet Boys Unbreakable?
what color should i dye it? i was leaning towards bright red or maybe pink or purple, but i really have to dye it something because my roots are showing. i will probably be using manic panic, so these are the colors available to me: http://www.manicpanic.com/best_of_best.html

what do you think miley cyrus' fate will be?
If right now you found out you/your SO were expecting a baby, how would you feel?
Mine is a lady at my job that whenever she passes my desk she tells me what she's doing. "I'm going to go get lunch" "I'm going to the bathroom" "I'm going to go move my car" "I'm going to go use my phone" - Sometimes I just want to yell, "I don't give a damn, just let me work!" :K
Will you subscribe to my YouTube or befriend me on YouTube? I sing covers of songs. (If yes, I will give link).
Do you have an IUD?
If you have one, what kind? (Paragard, Mirena, etc.)
If you have an IUD, did you have kids before it was inserted?
If you haven't had kids, did your doctor try to talk you down from getting one?
I'm thinking of getting a Paragard IUD for several reasons. 1) I'm uninsured, don't make much money, and don't plan to have children for a long time, meaning it's much cheaper in the long run. 2) I cannot deal with hormonal birth control and the side-effects. 3) Using only condoms is making me antsy.
I'm just worried I'll get talked down from getting one (I am well aware of the downsides) because I've never had children and I'm only 22.
DK/DC: What "weird" food combos do you like? I keep hearing that 7-Up and milk is delicious.
What's the best advice you've been given? If it needs explanation, what area of your life does it pertain to?
Should I eat my roommate's pizza for breakfast? He didn't come home last night, so I should assume that some strange girl is cooking for him this morning, rite?
I'm dating a new guy but live with my ex and a guy that occasionally stepped in with us. Awkward, y/n? For who? Because it really isn't for me.
He will send you anywhere, to any time period (past, present or future), for one week.
Where and when will you go? Why?
At the end of the week, you are given the choice: Stay there in that place and time period forever, or return to your regularly scheduled present-day life. If you stay, all your family and friends will know is that you up and disappeared, never to be seen again.
Do you stay?
ETA: Let's simplify this shit. No, you won't fuck anything up anywhere (or anywhen). Yes, you instantly are away of all the languages and cultural knowledge you'd need in order to not get yourself killed.
Do I have to go to the doctor for this or can I just go to Walgreens or CVS (drugstores) for treatment?
 Will you please tell tqc what you normally buy from there?
Do you consider yourself a good listener? When someone is talking or telling you how they feel do you actively listen or do you try to put in your two cents regardless?
Me: I talk too much and have found that when my SO is telling my how they feel I often become very defensive and talk over them to try and defend my side. It is a reoccurring problem and I have not really improved much in this area.
I have two that came with my phone, (bubble town and soccer) The Sims 3, Life and I just downloaded Oregon Trail.
What kind of phone do you have?
I have a Sony Ericsson Equinox.
How long do you take to get ready in the morning normally? What's the minimum amount of time you would need to get ready?
Girls, would you leave the house sans makeup?
I normally get up at 6:15. I woke up at 6:55 this morning. (EDIT: 15 minutes before I normally leave) I washed up, got dressed and left. I wasn't late.
I am sans makeup at work and sans doing my hair (it's just in a fuzzy ponytail and i put on a headband) I'm ok with it cuz I think I actually look pretty decent without makeup. I woulda otherwise been late if I had a problem with it and had to put on makeup. My hair is fuzzy but whatever
TQC, what kinds of volunteer work have you done and what would you reccommend? I'm in the NY metro area/Long Island if that helps at all. I'm pretty open minded, but I don't think I could handle something with intense physical labor (joint problems).
I hate Home Improvement, what television show can you not stand?
If you have read it,should I keep going or just quit while I'm ahead?
What are your first impressions of these 7 "people" based on their portraits alone? What sorts of words would you use to describe them? What sort of things do you think they do in their spare time?
( Collapse )
What are your weird tics?
Did/does anyone here stutter? How did you overcome it (if you did)? I had a very bad stutter in Elementary school and speech therapy worked wonderfully. I distinctly remember that weird feeling of words literally getting stuck in my throat. I think my phone tic may be a remnant from my stuttering days.
If you are for them, will you show me pictures of attractive ones?
What about on children?
Is there an age where children should start taking care of their own unibrows?
Or should the parents deal with it?
Every couple months or so I nair my step-daughters unibrow. Her mother is from Chile, and her dark hair really stands out with the unibrow. One kid started pointing and making fun of her once, so I just like to take care of it so that doesn't happen. Am I horrible?
I'm pretty sure a suit is overkill, and it seems quite informal as they just said to come on down anytime I'm free to interview.
Here's an idea of what I'm working with: black dress pants, a simple black skirt (it's kinda too big though), button downs, some polos, some light sweaters, and a nice pair of jeans.
Alternatively, what are you doing today?
Do you believe that God (if you believe in God) intervenes in daily affairs or that everything happens the way it's supposed to happen?
What do you think about the Out of Africa Theory? I know many people don't like to accept it.
DK/DC - Going with the food questions, what's your favorite foreign food?
What's the lamest thing you like?
What's the coolest thing that you like?
What's your favorite word?
If you could bring back any cancelled show, what would it be?
What did you order?
Did you enjoy yourself?
What was the healthiest meal you have ever eaten?
Getting a tattoo in Hebrew or any language you don't actually speak or have any connection to?
2) What is your favorite band/performer you've seen live? What was so great about the show?
"is this just a dream or is this my reality" or something to that effect is all I can remember now that I've been reading lyrics to the wrong songs. It's a slow-paced song.
It's not that Jump 5 song...
Got it! Thanks __ria
DK/DC: What was the last movie you watched? Was it good?
My friend thinks it's strange of me to celebrate. I say it's not celebrating, it's commemorating, and there's a difference.
Who would give the best moustache ride?
I cheated on someone a couple of years ago, and now I get paranoid that the same thing will happen to me. I read into things thinking, 'I kinda acted like that when I was cheating and wanted out! OMG!!!' It's really friggin' annoying. How do I chill the fluff out and stop stressing myself out???
ETA: I guess I should add that I ended the relationship (it had lasted 2 1/2 years) after I cheated to be with the guy I cheated with. It wasn't just sleeping with someone else, I actually developed an entire relationship with someone else. Not sure if that makes it worse...
Does this make you :/ or :D
What are you doing this summer?
Got it! Thank you!
EDIT QUESTION: Do you think being made fun of by your waiter (if you know it was coming) would be fun? How often do you think the servers who have this job are serious when they berate their customers?
The description from the Facebook group is this:
Hopefully this page will spark seroius debates in international forums. This page will continue to exist and the date will remain the same. PS: We are not trying to slander the average muslim , its not a muslim/islam hatepage. We simply want to show the extremists that threaten to harm people because of their Mohammed depictions, that we're not afraid of them. That they can't take away our right to freedom of speech by trying to scare us to silence.
What do you think about this issue? Should religious figures be fair game for interpretation (in this case in the form of a drawing) or should all individuals respect the wishes of a particular religion?
I've seen 2 totally different people within the span of 10 minutes wearing these today and I feel like I'm missing out on some trend. It makes me feel old and I'd like to be filled in. Thanks!
Which do you prefer?
What was the last big lie someone told you?
What's pissing you off today? Rant and use lots of bad words, please.
What do you think will happen next season?
What is the worst thing about being gay in a straight world?
(Heteros are free to answer as well)
TQC, I've been on a cleaning purge of my room.
Do I keep a school scrap book from elementary (which was a crappy period of my life) and early high school (which was...not great but not horrific either)? I'm keeping stuff from graduation.
Reason why I ask is I do want to let go of all these memories, but that's just it, I'm worried down the line I'm going to turn around and look back at my life only to have huge gaps.
Failing that, just knowing the episode date would be really helpful.
Here in New Zealand I can't access the shows on his website. :(
Inspired by something in this documentary (Mugabe and the White African), I have three questions:
Is it possible to be a white person and an American?
Is it possible to be a white person and an Australian?
Is it possible to be a white person and an African?
ETA: Just curious. I'm massively upset by this documentary as it perfectly highlights man's inhumanity to man.
When does It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 5 come out on DVD?
What is the weather like where you are? Where are you? (you can just tell me what state you are in OR country if your not from the US).
I am in PA.
What is your favorite movie series?
Are you a packrat?
What's the most you've ever spent on a concert ticket?
( Collapse )
I just started one and I've spent an hour footering with the template/background and still hate it. I hope this passes.
I bought a new car three weeks ago and have been trying desperately to keep it clean and neat despite two messy kids and a messy husband. So you know what I did today? I stepped in gum, dragged it into the car, and smeared it across the driver’s side floor mat.
How do I get that shit out?
Any good non-fiction books you could suggest?
Have you ever thrown a book away?
What is the most horrific book/movie you've ever read/seen?
What is the most horrific true story you've ever heard?
Do you find book burning offensive?
My mom picked me up from school today to buy some material for my graduation dress, but we both forgot the list the designer gave me of said material. She was aware of that and didn't get mad at first.
But when I suggested that we could go back home to get the list and the rest of the material to take it to the designer as soon as we finished shopping, she got so angry that she said she wasn't going to help me with my dress anymore because I made her waste her time (she left her job early to pick me up on time) and I'd have to figure it out on my own. I don't have a car, and both my dad and sister are super busy right now and I'm too embarrased to ask them for help.
What can I do?
How did you learn to play? Can you recommend any websites that might be helpful to a beginner?
Will you show me a picture of a pair of sunglasses that you own?
My choices are red, blue, yellow, green, pink, orange, aqua, pea green, purple, brown, white or black.
When was the last time you went back to something you haven't played/listened to/whatever in a long time?
I haven't played this game since like December.
Do I have a right to be a little annoyed? When it comes down to it, I really don't mind sharing, just so long as I don't have anywhere to go/he lets me know he's taking my car and I'll be stranded.
ETA: He must have caught wind of this post, because he just took it again without asking me. His girlfriend's car is in the driveway. Definitely hiding my keys when he gets home.
i have never heard anyone say they dislike it or even that they were neutral towards it. can you think of other films like that?
I've read every single post on hypersexed and alphamale on Tumblr, I want more hotness to look at >:O
Also: how you doin'?
Plaid: is it going to be out of style soon or not? I feel like if I buy plaid shorts now they will be out of style within the year. (Mens clothing btw if this affects your answer.)
dk/dc: Favorite color to wear in the summertime? Wintertime?
This isn't super-remarkable, but one time when I was horseback riding, there was a piece on the bridle/bit that was bent and whenever I put any pressure on the reins the bent piece would jab the horse, Teak, in the mouth. She kept on acting resistant and stubborn. She's usually that way anyway, so it wasn't really unusual and we (my teacher and I) didn't know there was anything wrong. When Teak was acting stubborn, my teacher told me to be more strict. Well, it ended up with the horse rearing and me falling off. My teacher said it looked like Teak was going to land on me, but that she twisted her body really drastically in order to not. She also said that was the first time she'd ever reared like that when someone was on her. Once I got up and was recovering from the shock, Teak came over and kinda bowed her head and kept her nose at my knee for a few minutes. For an unaffectionate horse, that was pretty affectionate of her. <3
Have any suggestions of good (or funny) songs with the word "house" in them?
what is the most pretentious thing you've ever heard?
because good things come in threes:
size of the boat or the motion of the ocean?
Ron Paul 2012, bitches?
If there isn't anything, would you get cosmetic surgery if there were no risks and it was a totally painfree, instantly healing procedure? What would you get done?
What is something specific about your country/state that is drastically different elsewhere, and it pisses you off b/c everyone else is clearly wrong?
(I don't really know how to word this question. I just want to hear you guys bitch in a very ethnocentric way. BEGIN!)
What are you terrible at?
Tickets go on sale on Friday, but the show isn't until March 19, 2011!
How lame is that??
Now I'm facing a dilemma, because Paul McCartney is visiting Utah for the first time this July and his tickets go on sale this Monday.
They are both likely to sell out before I can afford to buy tickets to both of these concerts. So I need to pick one for now and hope the other won't sell out that fast...which is unlikely.
TQC, which concert should I buy tickets for: LADY GAGA OR PAUL MCCARTNEY?
What do I need or should I have in my room with me while I recoop?
What would you have in your room if you were stuck on bedrest?
The "good" options alone are mind-boggling, and I want to find a combination of healthy, relatively affordable and yummy enough for Picky Kitty (not pictured) to actually eat instead of knocking his dish over.
What do you feed your cats? What do you recommend?
ETA: Do you buy your food in a pet store (chain? specialty?) or online? I live in NYC and don't have a car, so it's kind of a pain carrying big bags of cat food around. I was wondering if it'd be worth it to try pet food direct or a similar site.
Do you like to set your own deadlines or have others set them for you?
Is this happening to anyone else? Am I missing something?
What was your last ebay purchase?
ETA: I screwed up. The pic behind the cut has the animal I'm asking about. The link that I give as "source" led to a picture of a leaping lemur, but now I've edited it to take to the same pic I'm talking about.

Pros and cons of mobile internet sticks? How do you like them? Are they secure/reliable? Can you really travel conveniently with them?
Do you feel that 2010 has not been your year so far?
If so, why and do you think things will get better?
cream cheese in the bottom
chili with no beans on top
sour cream on top of beans
shredded cheese on top
bake for whatever amount of time, so shits hot.
shredded lettuce on top with tomatoe and black olive.
IT STILL DOESNT SOUND RIGHT, what is your favorite chip dip?
Should I just say fuck it and have people bring their own shit?
What should the punishment be if someone throws up in my house and doesnt make it to my roommates bathroom. (its their friends that will be doing the drinking beyond capacity) Be creative plz.
ETA: I'm thinking about getting either my nostril or my tongue pierced so any information pertaining to those would be especially helpful, thanks.
What's your favortie song(s) lately? Bonus points for Youtube embeds/links.
2) Has anyone ever called the cops on you? What for?
Me: A couple of summers ago my mom was being really freakish. Probably mainly to do with the fact my dad was in Alaska for a commercial fishing job. He goes every summer but she was especially upset this summer and was angry at me 95% of the time. One day she threatened to call the police and have them remove me from the house because I wasn't cleaning my room, but she didn't. She never apologized for the threat itself, but she later apologized for her "behavior" over the summer.
As far as I know I'm not lactose-intolerant... I used to drink a ton of milk up until I hit my teen years.
Have you drank and driven...? How much?
If you don't want to answer that,
Who is your favorite model?
Well, wtf, why does a guy I've never seen before think it's ok to come touch me in such a way.
What makes people at a church think it's ok to touch people they don't know?
i used to run on an indoor track and i could never run on a treadmill. now, i can pretty much only run on a treadmill. i don't know if i have issues with pacing or what. i tried to go for a run tonight outside and i just CAN'T do it.
i'm still going to run at the gym because i like the treadmill, but i want to be able to run outside, too. how can i improve my endurance outside?
How's the weather for you, TQC? What part of the world are you in?
Do you have any amusing macros? Entertain me bitches!
(And for those who are curious my fiance is okay. The paramedics said it was a mixture of a fever, a fainting spell and most likely a panic attack. His ID wasn't an issue either. I know this should go in TQC updates but I'm too exhausted from staying up all night in the ER to go back through the posts to find it.)
What's the most expensive item? What's the cheapest? What, in your opinion, is the best value item?
(Inspired by this question where people were talking about expensive handbags being anything over $20. I wish I could find a good handbag for less than $20!)
For me: the most expensive item was my bag, which was $260. The cheapest item was my underpants, which were only $3! The best value item was a black velvet blazer I got from K-Mart (!) for only $39. The total cost of my outfit (including jewellery, stockings, underwear, shoes, etc.) was $796.
( Collapse )
DC/hate both bags: what's an item of clothing, or an accessory, that you just don't care about?
I don't care about blouses, but my mum goes nuts for them. Idgi.
I'm in the US if that makes a difference.
What about the future scares you?
The first part of my body I lose/gain weight in is my face, I totally go from looking gaunt to looking like Miley Cyrus.
Have you ever used on of these before? If you have, would you recommend buying it? Do you think it'll last at least a year? Also, do you have any other brand of (affordable) steam cleaner to recommend?
I'm guessing that means something vaguely intellectual.
What should we do?
Bearing in mind it'll be a Thursday night in a quiet city.
Would that bother you?
Does it include any of the items on this list?
Who else do you hang out with to be cool besides Steve?
what are you favorite alcoholic beverages? (i know this gets asked every 10 minutes but idc).
what should be the first drink i have on my birthday?
what will you get me for my birthday?
will you show off your favorite gifs of people boozing?
I find it really funny. I seriously wish this were a real movie. I would run to the theater to watch this!
edit: hilarious is the wrong word.
Of course, it really depends on the song. Usually if it's stuck, it's because I already listen to it a billion times a day. But sometimes my husband will play something that I don't like all that much, and if it gets stuck, I hate him for it.
If you haven't, you're useless to me.
(jk, if you really want you can tell me some of your good or memorable airplane experiences)
1) I have a Wii and already have Mario Kart and New Super Mario but am open to new games.
2) I have an Ipod Touch and all accessories I could need for it. There is a store in my town so it doesn't have to be purchased online.
3) I don't really buy movies or music
Any suggestions on what to buy?
ETA - it's actually in gift certificates from their reward points, and it expires in a few weeks. So I need to use it now.
Do you have a weird aspiration for your life (to other people anyway)? What is it?
