What are the chances of both my car air conditioner and house air conditioner being broken at the same time? During the hottest week of the year so far?
What's the last really unlucky/coincidental thing to have happened to you?
Do you say "y'all"? Where are you from?
I'm from Maryland. I think I've said it once or twice in jest. My mom says it all the time, having lived in northern Florida as a child. Her overall accent is extremely northern, though, so it's rather amusing.
y'all or ya'll?
dk/dc: what's your favorite breed of dog/cat? pictures?
WHY DO I READ CREEPYPASTA WHEN I KNOW IT WILL SCARE THE JESUS OUT OF ME AND MAKE ME UNABLE TO SLEEP?
will you plz post hilarious/adorable/cool/completely UNCREEPY things?
I was sitting outside tonight, getting loaded on Corona light and trying to teach my dog to walk backwards. Due to the hot and humid weather I doused myself in bug spray. Bug spray from an aerosol can.
...Should I shower asap now that I'm inside or can I sleep in bug spray? Is this a totally dumb question?
*Edit, while I was doing this, my mom called me internationally to tell me that she was doing Kamikaze shooters at a bar with Joey from Friends. Would this make you feel like a loser?
Would you be pissed off if your head of state stepped down and, instead of being replaced by their second, was replaced by a minister (or whatever their title is in your country) elected by the cabinet??? Oh and this whole thing took place in less then 12 hours.
because, like, australia just did that. and I'm a little upset over it.
what makes you annoying?
yes, everybody is annoying at some point.
The volume on my computer is not working. Well, it's sort of working. It makes the error sounds/general computer sounds, but when I try to play music or watch a movie, nothing. I've tried several different speakers/headphones, so it's not them, and it won't make any sound from the computer speakers. It is not on mute, that's the first thing I checked, lol.
TQC, what is my computer's malfunction?
What is something you have tried recently (or not, whatever) and weren't good at?
I tried texting while driving the other day. Not my best driving. Never again.
Instead of calling my boyfriend by his name, I accidentally said another guy's name on the phone...He's on a vacation in San Diego....he laughed it off and said he would never forget it....what the hell do I do?! I don't even know if I should try to explain...or try not to make a big deal out of it?!
is there anything you want to confess?
Do you think it should be against the law to use hateful language toward another racial group?
Going to Paris in a couple of hours.
Got anything to do in an airport?
Being harangued about my time wasted on the computer.
The bookstores have really bad tastes.

Do you like to have crusts on or cut off your sandwiches?
when was the last time you were ill? how did you feel?
What 'oh it's not my business' attitude really bugs you? (Ie. towards what topic/in what situations. This is poorly worded)
What foods do you crave when you're hungover? I always want 7-eleven nachos omg so bad.
Should I sober up and start my day or drink more and take a nap?
I'm hungry but also lazy. Should I eat an already made ham and pineapple burrito or should I get up and make a stir-fry?
Do you eat non-breakfast foods in the morning? Does it depend on if you've just woken up or if you've been up all night?
So I mentioned in my post last night that I get eaten by mosquitoes. I forgot to ask how you get them to stop itching so damn bad. Calamine just isn't cutting it. What do you put on your bug bites?
I'm watching Darkwing Duck right now....how in the world did they explain Drake Mallard (Darkwing) and Launchpad McQuack living together and adopting Gosalyn?
What are your thoughts on
new adding flavors to soda?
For example, Cherry Dr. Pepper and Vanilla Coke.
Most of the time I think they're meh, but today I tried Mountain Dew Distortion and it is fucking nasty.
If you wear makeup, what eyeshadow color(s) do you wear most often?
What eyeshadow color do you think looks best on you?
So, I need to get "proof that I am no longer employed at my old job"... which is weird in and of itself, but do you think just a note signed by my old boss would do? I can't really think of any other kind of proof I could get, but maybe I'm missing something.
It's kind of awk because I was an asshole who pulled a no call, no show instead of telling them I quit (but it was a shitty job with an even shittier manager so I didn't/don't care. For example, he said that women should not be in school, they should be on their hands and knees scrubbing floors. I hate that guy so much.)
I am completely satisfied with every aspect of my life right now, how are you doing?
What's the last ~creative~ thing you did?
So what was the last decision that you made? Do you want to change your mind?

According to thefuckingweather.com, it is 89 degrees out. The site further says
"ITS FUCKING HOT"
The high is 93, and there are supposed to be "scattered strong storms".
Should I go for a walk anyway, or will I die from heat exhaustion? Note: The "scattered strong storms" means it's fucking humid out there too.
dk/dc what does thefuckingweather.com say about your area?
I've been trying to get back into writing, so I've been reading about writing. So far, besides the internet, I've read Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird, and I'm reading Stephen King's On Writing. The former was okay but not as good as everyone claimed it was (maybe I was expecting too much). I'm enjoying the latter very much even though I don't like his other books.
Does anyone have any other suggestions for books I could read about writing that are along the lines of these two?
DK/DC: Who is your favorite author and why? Have you read a lot of their books? Do you like when an author sticks to one type of storytelling or do you like when they branch out into different genres (like sci-fi for one book and then general fiction for another)?
Will you please post a picture of your living room?
My husband and I are moving to a new apartment next month and are looking to get some new living room furniture. The walls at which we'd put sofa/chair are 12'6" and 8'4" (then there's a door completing the rest of the room to make it 12 feet). Our curent recliner appears that it will just take up unnecessary space. We were going to go with a sectional but there is just not enough space. We're trying to look at a bunch of living rooms to see how other people utilized space :) Thanks!
Can we talk about how much Italy is sucking right now and how depressed I currently am??
Has anyone been following Wimbledon instead of the World Cup?
I hate tennis but I have no choice here, my mother is obsessed...
What do you think of those two guys who have been playing for 10 hours and just started on a 3rd day and are STILL TIED? Are we stuck in some kind of perpetual motion alternate universe where they are really playing themselves? WHAT ELSE CAN EXPLAIN THIS? Unless they're doing it on purpose...
The two guys are USA/France, if you have no idea what I'm talking about. They're at
62/62 65/65 68/68 now. Neither one can win until one of those numbers is two higher than the other. They obliterated all world records 4 hours before they suspended play YESTERDAY. At this point, I would say it doesn't matter who wins, I think they've conclusively proven that they're as evenly matched as it gets...
EDIT: USA won, 68/70. The game lasted 11 hours and 5 minutes. :O
what can my hermit crab eat, besides the crap you buy @ the pet store?
I just checked weather.com and it's 93 degrees here. It also told me that today's high is 91. How is today's high lower than the current temperature?
The heat index right now is 98 degrees. Humidity's currently at about 60%. I have a huge craving for a Coke. Should I walk to the store (about a ten minute walk) to get one, or will I die of heat stroke?
Have you ever used a word/phrase/term as a part of your general vocabulary and later found out it was (either now or in the past) offensive in some way? Did you remove it from your vocabulary?
I was told not that long ago that the word 'gypped' is apparently from "Gypsy" and a racial slur. It seems people are indecisve on that though. Also when I was 9 or so I discovered the word 'faggot' and used it to describe everything until someone had a little talk with me, lol. I think I was calling my Guinea Pigs 'fags'.
DK/DC - Have you ever embarassed the shit out of your parents/family by being a little too candid as a kid?
Can anyone point me in the direction of an online comic strip where the characters are basically stick figures with really big heads and their mouths look like this :D ?
What a horrible description. It's usually really sarcastic, sometimes there's a dog thrown in there or an ice cream cone or something. ANYONE KNOW WHAT IT IS?
EDIT: IT'S NATALIE DEE! THANKYOUTHANKYOU
What's your favorite kind of m&m?
Hey guys, my shower is tiled with some kind of natural stone (might be soap stone, marble, idk). How do I sanitize it and get rid of mildew without ruining the tiles? Pretty much all the cleaners (Clorox, etc) I've looked at in the supermarket say to use them on non-porous surfaces only (this stone is obvsly porous). Anyone else have natural stone in their bathroom? What do you use to clean it?
DK/DC: Then answer someone else's question! :p
We were talking about this in one of my classes, and it got me thinking. What are some situations in which movies defy the laws of physics? Like in the A-Team, when they fly the helecoptor upside down, that's not physically possible, is it?
I realize that selling the stuff is a pyramid scheme and but I'm not trying to find out about selling; I want to know about the products themselves. Google seems to only give me sites from sellers and I wanted to see some objective third-party reviews.
My BFF and her mother pretty much swear by the Hearbalife products. They had a good experience with them but were only able to use them for a short time - like a month or two (they don't have a lot of money). Unfortunately, they are people who have no idea what the placebo effect is, when given positions of reasonable skepticism they give dogmatic and rather pseudo-scientific answers that only come from the Herbalife videos and pamphlets, and are very easily swayed by anecdata. This drives me insane.
But I like to try to keep an open mind about things, thinking "What if the products aren't bad themselves?" or "This might be good for them."
So, does anybody have any experience using the Herbalife products?
If so, what was your experience?
If you have any access to third-party reviews or objective data about the products (not the selling thereof) I would greatly appreciate you sharing it.
BTW, not trying to start anything with anyone just researching. Thanks for the help.
does anyone want to come and fix my oven for free?

I ordered a package from Urban Outfitters on the 23rd but noticed I accidently only changed my billing information to my new address and left the shipping information to my old address. I called UO today and they said I couldn't change the address bc it's basic and not ground shipping, so I called UPS and they said they can't change the address until the "first attempt" to ship it has been made...what should i do?! i know they don't ask for a signature or anything, so can't the person keep the package if they wanted to?
Is there a type of pain you find pleasant?
Do you find muscle pain pleasant? You know, the type you get when you do sports.
I love the pain and the light stiffness your muscles get when you do sports. I also like the pain from back massages (it's very similar to the muscle pain you get from sports).

I'm going to LA to visit a friend in August. (I'm from Vancouver, Canada! WOO)
She will be a good tour guide but I want some ideas of what to do. Disneyland is a MUST.
My friend suggested we drive to Vegas for a few days but I have no idea how long the drive is or if it will be worth it. I don't know if I really care to do that.
What should I plan to do while in LA? How long should I go for? 5 days? 7 days? 10 days?
How much money would you suggest I bring? (I'll stay for free, and will get groceries so food costs won't be too high, plus I think I can get Disneyland passes & other passes from my airmiles (I have over 3000 =[ haha)
Should we bother going to Vegas? Or should I do that as a separate trip?
I know this has been asked before, but whatever.

So I'm thinking about getting an e-reader, mostly because I've been reading tons lately, we're running out of space for bookshelves, and getting to the library is increasingly a pain in the ass.
My question: Should I get a Kindle, Sony Reader, Nook or Kobo? I'm leaning towards Kindle now that the price is reduced, but I wanted to hear other opinions. Thanks!

My boyfriend's puppy got really excited when she saw me today and when i sat down on the bed she was climbing all over me and hit me in the eye with her paw. That was around noon and I couldn't really open my eye until like 2ish. It's 4:30 now and it still hurts quite a bit and has been randomly getting really sensitive and i have to close it for a couple of minutes. Is there anything i could/should do? I'm not sure if it's just overly sensitive now and will eventually be fine or if I should see a doctor..? It's kind of freaking me out. I can't see any scratches or anything.. halp?
Have you ever taken more than the recommended fulltime load at your school? How did you find that experience? I'm thinking about transferring to a double degree, and it would be possible to graduate sort-of on time if I can fit 11 classes into next year (normal load is 4 classes per semester, I would have to take 6 & 5). Am I insane? I don't have to work while I'm at school, which might make this more possible.

When I signed up for PG&E they transferred me to Allconnect, who wanted to set me up with internet and tv.
The guy said it'd only be $5 for the first month with AT&T U-verse. He repeated this multiple times when I said I'd have to think about it. Finally I gave in because I stupidly thought he was actually being truthful. Apparently it was too good to be true because I got a bill in the mail for $150. I called their customer service and they said there was never any deal like that and to call AT&T to sort it out.
Is there a way to not be totally screwed out of my money? If so, would it be wrong to ask my roommate to chip in for half of the bill even though she wasn't there when I signed up for it? She still used the internet and TV.

I make 1:12 scale miniatures. I'm in a club, and for our display next year for this fair we're running, one of the themes is a museum. We'll each make a room in a museum. The museum rooms, if scaled up, would be about 17 by 11 feet, with a 10 foot ceiling, so, not huge rooms.
I need to pick the theme to my museum room. What themes can you think of? So far I've thought of a 'Children in history' room, with toys (not too many because I bet someone else will do a toys room), old school desk, 'try playing these old fashioned games!', children's clothes on mannequins, stuff about jobs children had, that sort of thing.
I'm not sure about it so I would love more suggestions! What should I do? :)
