Are you really ugly, but nobody likes you cause you're too weird?
Were you dissapointed by The Runways movie too? It focused on cherie and joan way too much.
How would you react if someone complimented you frequently/"excessively"? (Assume you're nearly positive the OP is being genuine).
DK/DC: What scents make you nauseous?
What's the strangest soda you have ever had? Any sort of drink if you are one of those weird anti-soda hippies. Though you people probably drink wheatgrass every day.
In a related vein, who makes the best ROOT BEER? (sorry, I am losing it rapidly)
Coconut milk ice cream. Brilliant and delicious, or sneaky vegan trick?
what sex positions can be suitable for a more submissive male (and more dominant female)? Because typical lady on top is all I can really think of, though suggestions of deviations from that would be appreciated
If you have no idea, will you tell me about your sex life? And specifically, what positions you most likely use?
dk/dc: What's your horoscope for today, if you believe in that stuff?
My brother just bought a $500 piece of equipment for his band, along with a shitton of other stuff. Some of the other guys are pitching in, but it was mi hermano who fronted the dinero. As such, when this band breaks up, how do they determine who gets what? Buying out or whoever originally bought it, keeps it?
DK/DC: When you use hydrogen peroxide to clean a wound, does it burn?? It hurts like a mofo to me, but it seems like everyone else doesn't mind it.
she found it inside a leaking capri sun pouch.
Who wants to have an LA TQC meetup at 1:30am today, PST? Location: my favorite bar
Do you like it?
We have a huge one here that is absolutely stuffed full of clothes that I can't imagine anyone would ever wear. I bought a pair of sunglasses there the other day, and I think I could have gotten a much sturdier pair from walmart for the same price.
dk/dc: What is your favorite healthy snack?
What is your favorite midnight snack?
What is the likelihood that my husband is getting tied up or electrocuted at this moment? (lol oh BOUND)
What's the worst song being played on the radio right now?
How do you like affection to be shown to you?
Do you know what doesn't happen to a male with a bp of 90/78??
DK/DC: What is your favorite television theme song?
dk/dc what are you doing today?
I'm subscribed to over 20 blogs and I get one or two new posts a day on my feed, if I'm lucky. Everyone seems to neglect their blog after the first couple of posts.
What are some blogs I can subscribe to that are updated a few times a week but not several times a day so it's not overwhelming to keep up on?
If you are an employer or supervisor, and you had females who you supervised, would you call them "my girls?"
If you are an employee, and a supervisor called you "my girls," would you be offended?
Never, not unless it was completely tongue-in-cheek.
Absolutely. I belong to nobody, and feel like it is an unnecessary show of power, and feel objectified. Plus, I am a woman, not a girl, tyvm.
Do you like pizza?
What is your favorite pizza topping?
What do you enjoy drinking with pizza?
Inspired by a comment at work...
When was the last time you were pleasantly surprised?
And why did people add me to their f-list because of this? =/
Have you ever added someone to your f-list because they appeared on Writer's Block?
ETA: LOL! All their journals are in Russian.
My local grocery store has cherries now! YAY! But they come in bags that are at least a pound. I can't eat a pound of cherries before they go bad. I get my own produce bag and grab just a handful or two. They are priced by the pound, and not by the bag.
My husband tells me that I'm not supposed to do that - I'm only supposed to grab a full bag. I think that's silly.
Am I breaking a grocery store rule?
EDIT: I don't know if this makes a difference, but the bags are like zip-lock bags. I'm not ripping open a bag and ruining it. I un-zip it, take my cherries, and re-rip it.
wtf am i going to do about getting a car and moving out if i can't even find a job?!
Person #1 - Age 26. pros: shares a lot of interests with you, conversation is always good and you never run out of things to talk about, similar sense of humor, amazing chemistry. Probably the best kisser you've encountered. cons: has a crazy work schedule so it is hard to find times to meet, since you also have a kind of crazy work schedule. Also, can't tell how much interest this person has for you. Is living at home with a parent at this point, but is looking to move out in the near future, and has applied for a better job (and has an interview) that would be way better hours.
Person #2 - Age 25. pros: has a great job at an internet giant, is incredibly nice, and has a pretty flexible work schedule and can basically fit their schedule around yours. Has a really nice house. It was sort of hard to come up with topics on your first date. Cons: On the first date, this person basically sprung a makeout session out of nowhere and is not a good kisser. Also, you find out they are a virgin. And apparently really wants to fix that. They seem like they might be a clinger.
Who do you devote more time and energy to? Do you string Person #2 along in hopes that Person #1 works it out? Do you let Person #2 know you're really not interested? Are you a gold digger and you go for it full force with Person #2? Or do you say "fuck it" and start the search entirely over again?
dk/dc TL:DR: How do you let someone down "easily"? Dumping is dumping no matter what, in my past experience, and I'm leaning towards letting P#2 down easily and I'm not sure how to go about that.
Am I left with whatever volunteering (if any) is possible within walking distance?
Which gender do you find to be generally more conservative? (Read post.)
What is your least favorite?
Have you ever purchased an “as seen on TV product”?
What was it?
Did you like it? Why or why not?
Would you like heartburn now or later?
Do you see anything wrong with a little bump and grind?
Don't know or care, what are you watching today that's not the World Cup?
What should I write?
2. How much should I tip (what percent) at a cafeteria-style restaurant where customers go through a cafeteria line and get their own food and take it to a table, but an employee comes by to refill drinks?
3. What has been one of your best Halloween costumes?
4. What would someone assume about you based on what's in your bedroom, its level of cleanliness, etc.?
ETA: This is the place https://www.lubys.com/en/ or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luby%27s (if that helps at all).
The more people in one place, the more stupid they get
How do you respond to someone who said to you: "Because of your skin you look like chocolate and should be eaten"?
Consider that you have to see this person once a week in an informal environment. You are not obligated to interact with them but they will probably seek to have contact with you. Also consider that you didnt appreciate the comment at all.
Bonus: Has anyone ever called you something that offended you a lot that was no direct name calling? How did you react?
ETA: If relevant, consider that you have dark skin and that people with dark skin are very rare where you live. It's also known that you are a foreigner living in said place.
will you tell me about your first flight? where did you go? did you have to stop anywhere? WHAT HAPPENED DID YOU DIE
dk/dc, what is the ugliest thing on forever21's website?
What is your favorite song by one of them?
Anyone have any suggestions on a cheap body spray for guys that I can use daily without smelling rank or as if I'm in middle school?
Have you ever been in a car accident?
(I'm asking for someone else)
Do you find the new Word to be as aggravating as I do?
kk thanks fame!
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Did you rent movies as a kid? Where from? What did you rent most often?
Probably a tie up between Andre and an animated Barbie movie featuring Barbie vs. Jem. I still remember the lyrics
DK/DC: If I were to throw a TQC pot luck, with everyone bringing their favorite thing to cook, what would you bring?
I would provide "Everything" Cookies!
If yes, do you have an opinion on what brand is best?
Are there any child cartoons that you secretly like? Why?
Mine are Fireman Sam, because I like welsh stuff :) and Phineas & Ferb, because it's actually funny unlike most disney shows
Assume you can sing well.
I went to get a pedicure, and the pedicure alone was $35. I go over and sit at the drying station, and then a guy comes over and starts giving me a shoulder massage. He says I'm extremely tense, then asks me to come over to the massage station and proceeds to give me a more intense massage. He didn't even ASK ME if I wanted it done, so I thought it was courtesy.
I go to the counter to pay only to realize that they're charging me $17 for the massage. WTF?!
I am making myself a barbecue cheeseburger right now :D YUM
Me: The L Word, Dead Like Me, Arrested Development
edit: What do you listen to?
Yep, I turn on my Disney Pandora station everytime, haha.
DK/DClean: What's your favorite Pandora station?
Can you suggest any interesting online reading? About anything at all. I don't have any good books to read and I need something to do when I take breaks from cleaning my mess tonight.
What if there were repercussions?
Are you the kind of person who is naturally lucky or the kind of person who never wins anything?
What would you do about it?
If it were your choice, would you read James Clavell's Shōgun or the first book of the Kim Stanley Robinson trilogy, Red Mars?
Basically it boils down to Japanese historical fiction or utopian/dystopian science fiction set on Mars. Both seem like they've got lots of drama and action. Shogun is a lot longer than Red Mars. I've started both of them before but didn't get far in either, so whatever I pick I'm going to end up starting over. Aaand I'm probably going to be reading it alongside Their Eyes Were Watching God.
What genres of fiction do you most enjoy reading?
How often do you read, either novels or nonfiction books? Can you read a book straight through or does it take a while? I used to read like a fiend (I once kept track of all the novels I read in a year and it was something outrageous, like two hundred). But since I got to college it's a huge effort to read anything, even something that seems really interesting.
What are some interesting things to do around Allentown and Harrisburg PA? Not family-type amusement park things (so no Hershey Park/Dorney Park)....stuff like Centralia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centralia,_Pennsyl
DK/DC Where was the last place you went on vacation? Who did you go with?
Where do you get your icons from?
Will you reply to this with your newest or favorite icon?
Do you have ridiculous cats like I do?
dk/dc: what's this evening got in store for you?
Any suggestions on what I can do to burn off my pissed off-ness? I'd been having a bad day already, and this isn't helping.
either in term of their talent or their attractiveness
the new eminem CD is ridiculous
I got a 258, and I am definitely quite Type-A.
For me it's a tie between Perth because it seems so alone out there in western Australia. I've heard interesting things about the music/culture. The other is Reykjavik in Iceland. I think it's the northernmost capital of any country in the world, and people have told me it's great. Iceland in general fasciantes me. Sadly I've been to neither.
Do you like grafitti or do you hate it or what?
Where do you normally buy your furniture?
BBC auto show...its entertaining!
Is it normal for parents to tell their kids that they're fat every day?
DK/DC: What's your favorite pair of socks?
Why did the chicken cross the road?
Dude, where's the rum?
how do you like your eggs?
My mom forbid me from getting one when I was a teenager, and now I'm like SHIT I NEED TO BUILD CREDIT. I have no idea which one to get, though. What do you have?
We have $300 just in cash gifts.
I'd like to invest this money somehow.
TQC you are better with money than I am, how should I do that?
How long would you wait before you take it out and put your stuff in the dryer? Or...is there another alternative. It's too humid to air dry stuff here right now.
If you could either change your boss or the type of work you do, what would you choose?
How happy are you with how much you get paid? 5 being couldn't be happier!
Oh no!! Someone stole all the forks from your house! What do you eat? The following choices are the only things you have in your house to eat.
If I offered you a Chupa Chups lollipop, which kind would you choose?
My family in a state 900 miles away wants to throw me a baby shower. The baby is due in January. I am eligible for one week of vacation in November. I plan on taking 12 weeks after the baby is born. What should I do?
What is a poll question you would like to see asked?
how would you compromise with someone opposite of you in this way?
in this post, i mean.
how many twinkies have you had in the past 5 years?
how much money will i win? (if i get all 5 balls plus the power ball i win $44 million or $23.5 million cash)
what would you do with the 23.5 million?
edit: i got the powerball so i won $3!
not the million id like, but a nice investment.
Are there any "polite" things that men do for women that you think are actually offensive?
For example, I train at a martial arts gym and I'm the only girl. The guys have all been super respectful and inclusive but sometimes if I walk in on a conversation suddenly and they're talking about masturbation or something like that, there is this guy who apologizes to me, "oh, I'm sorry you had to hear that!" And he will either censor himself or immediately apologize to me after cursing. He's 23 and I'm 20, so it's not really an age thing either. The thing is, I don't care how vulgar he is and I've told him so before. My mind is equally if not infinitely more filthy than his. I guess he thinks he's being courteous by protecting my virgin ears from anything not made of rainbows and lollipops but I'm sort of offended in a way because it's sort of patronizing. Should I tell him?
I have horrible acid reflux and just took 4 tums that aren't working, what do I do now?
What kind of performer are you?
personally, the slippery slope fallacy is usually enough to make me RAGE
What did you do to calm yourself down?
I just watched 'A Serious Man' and threw a book across the room. Can't believe I didn't look up the directors beforehand. I hate the Coen brothers more than Mel Gibson hates Jews.
If you could have the body/appearance of any celebrity, who would it be? Zooey Deschanel.
Edit: I thought this would be something there would be a consensus about.
Don't know/care: After you've finished going to the bathroom, do you pull up your pants first and then flush, or do you flush first, then pants?
I do the former.
How bad of an idea is this?
EDIT: I was kind of hesitant to add this detail before, but it might change things. This guy is my violin instructor and we flirted when I wasn't eighteen yet (I'm eighteen now) and he'd say things like "Oh, well once you're 18...."
