Are you left or right handed?
I have a boyfriend of 3 years, we have a good, stable relationship, we have the money for a baby, and we're at decent ages to start seriously thinking about it (25 and 29). Neither of us really want an engagement period and will probably just elope, how ever he is not ready, so this NEED I have for a baby needs to GTFO. I went to a cookout today and ended up (gladly) being the babysitter, figuring that maybe dealing with a 15 month old and a 2.5 year old would make me feel eh about babies, but it backfired and now I want them even more!!
Not related: Do you watch UFC? Did you watch tonight's UFC? What do you feel about the results of the main event?
Will you send me links to cute, but somewhat affordable ($100 or under) duvet covers for a queen bed?
If you're not drunk, how come?
I am and I could probably go to bed in a bit. 7 beers is sneaking up to me!!
Because I have a new sweater that is pretty neat, but it is sort of itchy, and I always find sweaters to be less itchy once they have started to pill. I really like my sweater, but it is uncomfortable to wear because it is so itchy. :[ I've put it through the wash AND through the dryer three different times with a load of jeans, and that really hasn't done much to it at ALL. The sweater is made of acrylic (55%), nylon (30%) and mohair (15%). I don't know if that makes a difference or not.
What does this phrase mean to you literally or metaphorically?
"The opposite of my flaws"
I've taken the ACT twice and got a 29 both times. :/ My goal is a 31. Is there any chance I could raise it two points by getting like a review book or something? Or should I just settle for a 29?
i don't dislike people but i don't seem to like them much, either. i hung out again tonight with this guy that i was with not 12 hours ago, who i know i like. but after i had a couple drinks i was like, man this sucks i just don't like this guy. and i'm like that with everyone! even my best friends.
are there absolute truths?
if you answered yes, could you name some absolute truths as an example?
For example, one I saw for community-related issue was "persuade the city council either to reduce subway and bus fare OR to create more effective routes and times for buses and trains" and the school issue was "write to the student advisory board persuading them to either create a more strict dress code or to abandon one all together".
Will you give me ideas for practice prompts? I'm googling for some, but they aren't what I am looking for.
DK/DC: What the fuck are you doing today?
I don't have anything planned except to pack for my vacation, which begins Tuesday night.

i can't get rid of this stupid "Can't resize icon" error when I make a new icon.
This time it didn't turn on. It is charged, it just won't turn on.
Of course this happens the night before a holiday!
Is there any chance that a Verizon store is open today?
I did check the website and it said nothing about special holiday hours. I called even though they were closed to listen to the recording of hours, and nothing special was mentioned, either. I'm still worried that they won't be open!
If you don't go to Starbucks, where do you go and what do you get?
What about your steak?
will you tell me about it?

What are some of your favorite local chains?
In California (where I'm from) I love In n' Out burger.
In Ohio, which is where I spend a lot of my summers, I love Skyline Chili and Frisch's Big Boy.
what do you get at planet smoothie?
if you don't have it, then i guess you're SOL
Care to share youtube videos of your favourite songs in a foreign language?
Don't know or care, if someone paid you a million dollars, would you agree to be locked in a 9x7 room for a year? Yes, you would still have access to the internet and other modern conveniences.
I want to jam out in a rock n' roll fashion and would like some inspiration
Do you know anyone who has the attitude that you can never fully trust anyone?

If asked, would you ever carry a child for a close friend who couldn't conceive/carry their own?
Any tips or wise words of wisdomly wisdom?
not really. Today I'm wearing red and black...I don't like looking like a flag.
So can anyone tell me the difference between the 110 and the 210?
*EDIT: Apparently I wasn't clear enough. I have already used the compare feature on the HP website. The slight differences in dimensions and ability to upgrade on the 210 are the only ones I see. I'm looking for actual differences in performance and functioning, especially as I am not going to upgrade the 210 if I go for that one.
(My kitty is a little chub so I want her to be nice and fit for 5 years old.)
If you can't answer the question, what kind of pet do you have?
If you don't have a pet, what pet do you want?

But I feel like that is cliché. Do you have any better ideas, or obscure quotes that sort of say that writing this project alone means it would never have happened?
(My google-fu is all used up.)
I have severe migraines and sometimes get seasonal allergies. Since I live in a very dusty environment (I do my best to keep up with the dusting, but it's tough when you live right next to a main road), I bought an air purifier thinking it would help.
However, since I started using it, my migraines have gotten WORSE and I've started getting sore throats. I know it's the purifier because everything lets up once I turn it off.
Why would my symptoms be getting worse from something that's universally accepted to make them better? Google isn't giving me any help. I just bought it, so it's not the filter. I don't use the thing anymore but I really want to know why it made things so much worse.

What are your favourite LJ communities?
What are more interesting LJ communities you've come across?
Where do you post the most?
What's the weirdest LJ community you've ever been to?
I've been getting pretty bored of all the communities I'm in and it seems harder to find more interesting communities that aren't icon making communities or of the claim-your-favourite-Twlight-character nonsense.
What are some of your favorite things about the USA?
I don't mean the big, intangible things like life, liberty and the ability to pursue happiness, but small things that you can only find in the US or are made specifically by Americans like Crayola Crayons, Krispie Kreme doughnuts, Gretsch guitars, Gray's Papaya or the biggest ball of twine.
To my non-American TQCers not to leave you out, where are you from and what are some of the little things you like about your country?
Would you be cranky about that? (I think I'm also a little ticked because a few years ago, before he came out to us, he was 'doing school work', but really he was going out - that really upset us, and he's had to work hard to regain our trust)
Which of the following should I reread?
dk/dc...Favourite Country song right now?
What do you sing?
Would it annoy you if the person you lived with sang/hummed/whistled while they were wandering around the house? Assuming they could do so on key?
My mom related this story to me (I missed most of it as I left early to go get STEAK and shit) as if the manager was perfectly within his rights, while I have to agree with the woman getting a bit upset. She was wearing a regular bikini that covered all her important bits. What if she was just fat? Could they have told her to put a shirt on to cover her food baby? It's unusual to wear a bikini when you're pregnant maybe, but not obscene. God know it's probably more comfortable.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?!
If they went to prison for a year, who do you think would wind up having sex the most behind bars?
Best movie series?
Best dead-before-their-time musician?
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are separating. How does this make you feel?
Do you let your friends borrow your stuff?
We're only seeing each other about twice a week and I just feel like I want more than that.
I'm almost 22 and I've known several of my friends since we were 4.
How old is your oldest online friendship?
I still talk to a few guys I met online in 2001/2002.
DK/DC: How long can you stay outside in the sun without sunblock before you burn?
Can you suggest websites, or things to watch on Netflix? Or anything?

That's all I got.

Do you hate to carry shit?
What do you think is completely overrated?
What is your opinion of people who run back to/remain with their significant others if they're abusive (emotionally/physically/verbally/etc)? Have you ever been this person?
What are your thoughts?
I took some photos on my friend's camera over vacation, and after I saw them I reconsidered submitting a second portfolio for AP studio art for photography. But I can't decide which set of photos I like best; there's a batch from Provence and from Florence that I really like. Will you decide for me?
You can separate the two groups by clicking on the tags: one is Provence and the other Florence. A concentration is a set of 12 photos that go together and concentrate on one thing; which is why I like the Provence ones because I have more photos, and can concentrate more on landscapes. But I prefer the individual photos from the Florence album.
dk/dc: What is your favorite food associated with a holiday?
Money that is
What's the cheapest way to get three people drunk in your area? We're leaning towards two 4 liter jugs of Carlo Rossi (they're 2 for $20 at the Target here right now), but we're up for variety.
Did you have "crushes" on any teachers/professors growing up?
DK/DC, why is it really uncommon for gay men to be in a long term relationship?
After reading the comments and answers, I have concluded that people masturbate a lot. Sometimes 5+ times a day.
So, can you desensitize yourself? I surely don't think you can, but have you heard of such a thing? What is your opinion?
As their friends, do we just have to shut up and deal with them? Are we all doomed to suffer through the misery again? Have you been in this situation before?
Глобальная Система Статистики и Безопасности (ГССБ) может изменить мировоззрение человека. Не нужно заранее предполагать, что человек не способен не совершать преступлений. ГССБ способна изменить человечество и тогда за людьми можно будет следить сколько угодно и ничего не найдешь в них плохого, потому что это будет ИДЕАЛЬНОЕ ОБЩЕСТВО, ИДЕАЛЬНОЕ ПРАВИТЕЛЬСТВО, ИДЕАЛЬНЫЙ ЗАКОН.
So, food is good. I'm pretty hungry. I'm thinking about making eggs in purgatory and then serving it in a pizza crust bowl.
Have you ever had eggs in purgatory? I haven't, but it sounds like it'll hit the spot right now.
If you were going to make a pizza crust to use like a bread bowl, would you bake it or fry the dough?
What's something that's made you happy recently?
I got some pictures this time.
Question: is this a black widow, y/n?
( Collapse )
I didn't want to get my hand close to try to get a picture next to a coin or anything for size :-\
There have been a few times in the past six months when I've met my friends' friends and, shall we say, not come away with favourable reviews. It's starting to make me feel really anxious when I have to meet new people because I'm worried that I'm an awful bitch and just haven't realised it yet...
I'm petting her and talking calmly & soothingly but she's still shivering.
how do you deal with it?
i always come up with some reason why the person is just using me, be it just for sex(most common), a rebound or to get close to a friend. that's the one now. except the friend i think he's trying to get close with is actually the person i met him through, and they're already BFFs, so he doesn't need me for that.
BONUS QUESTION: is it really nerdy that the World Cup isn't even over and i'm already starting to plan my Premiership and Champions League fantasy teams?
Is this why the interweb is so dead today?
what is youre gender?
in your dream world how many times a week/month/year would you have sex?
7-14 times a month.
Dk/dc, Ludo's Love Me Dead is stuck in my head, what song's stuck in your head?
does anyone know the full quote and/or its source?
The ones on my laptop have all come off, and it's really annoying.
eta: Now that that's settled... what are the coolest fireworks you've ever seen? I saw Saturn-shaped ones in Indiana and they blew my five-year-old mind.
Has this ever actually happened to you?
Also, it's my first international plane trip, is there anything I should be careful of packing so I don't get deemed a terrorist/have to unpack everything? Lotions, shampoos, etc...
I already listen to Jenny Lewis, Jefferson Airplane, Tegan and Sara and Nicole Atkins, if that's any indication to the kinds of music I like.
I'm really sleepy and really hungry. What should I do?
