TQC, I'm having a really bad day.
Could you please post something funny or cute to cheer me up? Video, Webpage, etc.
Hope you all have a much better day than mine!
Does anybody know any good dance or ballet communities on LJ? Or are dancers themselves and would like to befriend me? The only communities I seem to find are Russian ¬.¬ I just enrolled in an adult ballet class today and I'm nervous and excited and would like some likeminded friends! Thanks!

please tell me why moving across the country is so complicated?
Have you ever walked out of a movie? Which one(s) and why?
I walked out of Step Brothers because I couldn't stand the douchebaggery anymore and also Duplicity because I wasn't really paying attention and lost the plot. I *almost* walked out of Hot Tub Time Machine too.

Why do you think it is that when women kill their children and have it associated with Postpartum Depression that there is a lot more sympathy for them than, say, a rapist who is extremely effed up in the head and has had a horrible abusive life himself?
Do I warn people before a fight that I have a black belt in Judo? I really can't control my temper when girls try to pick a fight...especially at bars.It seems like its self defense. But it's not a fair game...Regardless of the fact, they still think that I'm bsing...I sound stupid saying it, but really though I feel like I ought to give a warning!

Are you a sweetie pie?
Will you tell me something that makes you feel awkward?

I spent the day at the beach on Sunday and got the worst sunburn I think I've had in my life. I used to never burn when I lived in Florida, but now I don't spend too much time in the sun. I got it all on my back and chest and it's really not cool at all. I have to lay on my stomach constantly, and even when i wear a shirt that covers the burn, the sun hits the shirt and burns my skin, so I can't be outside for very long. Anyway, I don't have anyone to rub aloe in to my back all the time, so I got one of those shower poufs on a stick to put aloe on and then rub against my back, but it's like rubbing a cheese grater against my skin. I feel like dying. I haven't started peeling yet, which is at least the cool part. Ugh.
YAY! We're throwing a TQC potluck! What do you bring to eat or drink?
I'd bring a 12 pack of PBR and a dish of mac and cheese.

If you posted an online personal ad and a coworker responded, how would you react? Would you respond to him/her? (S/he does not know it is you.)
Do you like when reporters harrass people they are interviewing by interrupting them and making accusations?

TQC, how do I fix being a pathetic loser and make some freakin' friends that are in my area?
I've been in Texas for over three years and have only made two 'friends'. I've been to parties with them/gone out with them a bunch, but their crowds (and the majority of kids I do meet) are very into the 'party' scene, which is cool, I like the party- but I don't really party. Weed makes me sick so i don't smoke it, I dont really like drinking and getting drunk at other people's houses that I dont know well just makes me panic, I'm married so I'm not very... "sexual" I suppose is the word? And I guess it makes me come off as stuck up even though I'm not arrogant or judgey when i say "No thanks" when offered stuff.
I've tried going to church since I figure I'll find kids who might have more in common with me (the no drinking/smoking idea) and that wasn't the case lol (along with enjoying the party, I also like to do stuff like paintball or just general activities that doesn't have to be party-like).
Its a small town so i run into a lot of groups that have been friends since forever and I can't really get in with them it seems.
I've tried going to "mommy&me" groups, since I have kids and maybe can make friends with other girls, and that didn't work either =/.
I just end up not having enough in common with anyone to persue a friendship past the small talk.
I don't think its my social skills, I have a whole load of friends back home, still do, so... I don't know what my problem is =(.
Is there anything that you fear?
My boyfriend has had a fear of aliens for years that I just found out about, it all started with him watching Fire In The Sky when he was very little. I have a fear of spiders, and only if I am aware that there is one around. I also used to fear the thought of being dead.
How do you guys feel about the oil spill in the Gulf?
The guy I'm seeing commented on a picture I sent him that I didn't remember and I was like "WTF, That is not me that you're talking about." Upon closer examination of my sent MMS's I found that it was in fact me. Is he ever going to call me again?

A tiny scar on my knee from a former scrape
Okay. So after putting up with blurry album art for a few months, I finally got the album art off of iTunes. But even though it said it changed album art for 333 songs, I only see a change for one album. And it put the wrong album art with it. So iTunes isn't going to be any help.
My question - what size picture would I need to find on Google Images so that it wouldn't be blurry?

Why is prostitution illegal?
If women are that desperate for money and men are that desperate for some poon, and they both accept the risk of sexually transmitted diseases, then why shouldn't it be allowed? People can do what they want with their own bodies, right?
I am going to a cabin for the next four days with all the family on my mom's side (20 of us). It is supposed to rain Friday and Saturday.

I bought my kid the three pack of The Princess and the Frog (blue ray/dvd/digital copy) from Amazon back when it came out. We're going on a trip and I want to load the digital copy on my netbook so she can watch it on the way.
The problem is that I've lost the insert that had the digital "unlock" code on it. It won't let me install it without the code.
Does anyone know of another way to get the copy of that code?
will you show me your desktop?!
Do you think it's still generally a big deal if a boy wears pink? What about if a grown man wears it?

Why are they showing episodes of Star Trek TNG on BBC America? Is the UK trying to steal the USA's aliens? Is it because Doctor Who sucks? (YEAH SON I WENT THERE, WHAT'RE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT???)
Do you ever flip through channels and wonder what kind of people are sitting around watching this weird shit? Seriously, I want a camera that can see into the homes of people who are currently watching "Sweat Equity" whatever the fuck that is, or "Ed Hardy Footwear" or "Joel Harper's Firming After 50"... you know what actually I don't think I want a camera on anyone watching that last one but you get the point.

What do you think is the worst possible name for a child? (It has to be something that is an actual name.)
So apparently there was a Mexican teenager that was shot and killed at the border for throwing rocks at an American officer. A lot of people are just going and disregarding this teenagers life just because he was Mexican(and apparently a smuggler but that's to be determined) and trying to gain entry into the states illegally.
Do you think American people would be singing a different tune if it was a white teenager doing the same to a Mexican officer?
Do you find the word cunt as offensive as ethnic slurs?
Will you guys help me out?
I decided to spend my birthday money (haha it was in February but I didn't know what I wanted) on movies.
I want to know all the amazing movies you've ever seen! OLD AND NEW!

How can I keep my kitty cool in an apartment that's about 90 degrees due to a broken AC?
You and your significant other are perfect for each other. You are best friends, have great chemistry. They listen to you and care about you and make sure you're safe and provide for you.
They just don't express how they feel for you with words. They never call you pet names, tell you how much they love you/miss you/how special you are to them/etc.
Would this be a deal breaker for you?
TQC I am confined to the house for the next 15 days- can you recommend some good time wasting web sites? Or tv shows or whatever?

Suggestions for not going crazy from loneliness when living on your own? I am surprising myself by craving interaction.
Your favorite (fresh, preferrably) herbs? I'm digging basil.
1. It's become a tradition that every year with my birthday coming on I try to think of a song with lyrics referencing that age. For example, age 21 was "21 and Invisible" by Something Corporate. 22 was "I was born this Thursday, 22 years ago" by Switchfoot.. and so on.
Well, I'm 25 tomorrow. What songs talk about turning/being 25 years old?
2. When's the last time you thought someone looked familiar but could not place where you knew them from? Did you ever figure it out?
What is the best prescription medicine for a toothache? What will a dentist usually prescribe? My dentist from years ago couldn't prescribe painkillers so I am not informed.

My friend is on her way over and we're trying to decide what to do. The malls are about to close, there's nothing we want to see at the movies, and we go to the book store far too often. We have about $30 combined to spend. Got any ideas? We live in South Florida, if that matters.
What was/is for dinner tonight??
I had hamburger helper and broccoli. Boring.
What's a good name for a hamster? Girl and boy names are welcome. The more ridiculous the better!
Are there any Australians here on the Telstra pre-paid mobile network? And if so, do you have issues with receiving mms texts from other carriers? Were you able to fix it?
Damn network won't let me download mms texts that aren't sent from a telstra number. >:/ I've tried their 'faq's' but it still won't work dammit!

are there any artists that you'd love to see live, but can't for some reason?
(the group disbanded, they're dead, they just never come around, whatever)
I am desperately trying to find a good foundation for under $20, and having no luck. In the past, I've tried the Neutrogena mineral stuff (fail, none of it actually sticks to my face), and purminerals or whatever it's called, which worked better, but still not great (especially for the price). Bareminerals didn't have the right shade for me, I've already tried it. I am very pale, if that makes any difference. So, ladies of TQC, what do you use? Do you like it? Any other suggestions? I might try a liquid one, since mineral ones aren't working out so well.
If you don't wear foundation, or don't care, what was the last thing you bought?
I have this great skirt in a deep pink with white circles on it. I never wear it because I do not have any shoes that work. It would look silly with very high heels but I look weird in skirts and flats because I am short. Also, what color to get is baffling me. Like a nude color? Black (almost all my shoes are black) looks harsh and odd. I despise sandals, especially at the office, which is where I'll wear this mostly.
TQC, where is a good place to look for some shoes that will work with this bright cheery skirt of wonderful? I want to wear it soon. (I haven't found anything at Zappos that works for my thrifty nature.)
What would we do without you?
Whats in your fridge and pantry?
HAWKS WIN THE STANLEY CUP!!!
how are you, TQC?
I just started tutoring a seven year old girl a week ago, and although I love it, she has trouble concentrating. Are there some games that I can play with her that will increase her focus?
What was the most awkward experience of your life, TQC?
I took a friend of mine to a concert to introduce her to a man I've been thinking of dating. He showed up in drag. His legs were better than mine and he walked better in heels than I ever will. She's called me and laughed every day this week.
How do you deal with people that are mean to you? I'm too sensitive. :(
LET'S HAVE A QUOTE POST!
will you post a quotation (or several) that you find inspirational or profound?
here's one from me:
"As long as life is ascending, happiness is the same as instinct" - Friedrich Nietzsche
Where does someone cross the line between being a good person to being a bad person? Obviously murder, rape, child molesting, and acting like Hitler would all qualify. I'm looking more for the tipping point.
So.. this might be a long shot, and I've used my Google-fu, but I really don't know what I'm talking about so it's not specific enough.
A long time ago, a teacher gave my class this exercise that we used to figure out our dreams and goals, the whole "what do you want to be when you grow up?" kind of thing. All I can remember was having to close our eyes, and picture a field, we're walking on it, and then she started asking us if there was a path, what kind of path, telling us to follow the path, what did it take us to, etc.
Kind of a guided meditation thing.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Or can link me to that sort of exercise?
Thanks bunches, kiddos.
