I have a bug identity question. I have found a couple of these guys on sheets of drawing paper I buy at school and I have no idea what they are. They are extremely tiny and look like barely anything more than specks to the naked eye, but I took a few pictures of one through the lens of a stereoscope and it's still quite small but hopefully they are clear enough that someone can recognize the insect type! DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MIGHT BE TQC?
EDIT: entomology comm solved it, it is a booklouse!! ew!

Also, do you like South Park? If so, who's your favorite character?
I like Cartman because his voice and catch phrases are so fun to imitate.
I would prefer to write something that doesn't focus on sex. I suck at writing it.
What kind of earphones do you prefer?
Do you have an ipod?
Do you have an i-anything?
In-ear earbuds: How the fuck do you get over the feeling of them being in your ears??? Also, how many sets of earbuds can my cat chew through before I rehome him? He's on pair 4. Also also, since I can't stand the feeling of the in-ear earbuds, I have cut off the part of my earbud that my cat chewed through and am currently listening to Poker Face in mono, lol.
If so which one would you choose: the pb&j w/ grape, pb&j with strawberry, or the bbq chicken?
What else wouldn't you want to eat out of a can (besides these sandwiches)?

Would you suck it up and pay the stupid ticket? Or in the name of honor and justice, should you fight it in court even though the cost of missing a days worth of work is more than the ticket itself? You will not get points on your license either way.
We're staying at the Palms and have a loose schedule, but I want to know if there's anything besides the clubs and pools I need to see/do/experience.
2)What, if anything, is on the back of your toilet?
I don't have a fear of needles, I don't mind going to the dentist/specialized doctors, I just hate going to a general practitioner and I don't know why.
I think it's partially because my doctors have made me feel bad about things completely unrelated to my health in the past and I don't want to deal with it.
I haven't had a check-up in three years. Will you convince me to just schedule one?
Notice that I said cuisine. Best China Wok doesn't count. =)
We've been ordered by the town to do repairs at the church that exceed our cash-on-hand by several thousand dollars, so I have to get over myself and finally do some fundraising.
Do you have any awesome fundraising idears for us, O human peoples of TQC?
How often do you reread books you really like?
my roommate insists that she just doesn't have the right brain for it. and i think it's definitely interesting how easily it comes for some people and how difficult it is for others.
what was learning a different language like for you, if you studied another one? what language was it?
What are you hungry for right now?
Not used OneNote? EDIT: Do you like the tattoo in the pic, y/n?
I just read The Dead Zone, and it was an amazing read, I really recommend it. But it made me really depressed. Like when I finished it, I felt really awful. I can think of few books that have impacted me so emotionally, and this one's made the list.
Have you read The Dead Zone? If so, did you like it? Did it have a deep impact on you, too?
A couple weeks ago, I made this entry here. I ended up taking The Dead Zone with me because it had the highest number of votes, and I was not disappointed! The Dead Zone has become my favorite S.K. book so far, and one of my favorite books ever. I thought it was amazing and very powerful.

What happened to decent grammar? When did this madness start?!
Now, I need help with Cuban desserts. My friend came to the States from Cuba when she was 5 (17 years ago), and her favorite dessert from there was- well, this is where it gets fuzzy. She's pretty positive it was made with a lot of sugar (granulated or brown or confectioner's, she's not sure), and it ends up kind of cube-ish.
We're planning on having a girl's night in with her little girl, and she wants me to show her how to make this. BUT how can I show her how to make it without knowing what it is?
This is my most (recent) desperate hour. Help me, TQC, you're my only hope!
DK/DC What did you do for your last birthday? If it wasn't anything particularly exciting, how about your next birthday?
My last birthday I was staying with a friend of mine in California. We went out for Chinese food (I looooove sesame chicken), went home, had cake and ice cream, and then played Harry Potter on Wii. This year I think I might just go out for breakfast, there's a cafe nearby that has crazy good breakfast food like peaches and cream French toast and banana and caramel pancakes, and then maybe hang out with some friends.
ETA: This isn't influenced by the post a couple below mine, I promise.
Also, can any of you tell me your personal experiences answering a flatshare on craigslist, not knowing any of the people?
Oh, and hm... maybe you know a job website catering to the NYC area that's not craigslist either?
Oh, and, have any of you had any experience hitchhiking? Where/what was it like? Do tell!

What do you think of them? Would this be an ideal undergarment for spur of the moment sexing or is it just weird?
Dk/Dc, what's your favorite pair of shoes?
so uhhhhhh will you share things you like about your job? no bad stuff i don't want you guys bumming me out
I've been on hold for 20 minutes.
I'm at the point where I want to punch the wall or stab my phone. How do I stay sane here? Hanging up is not an option.
What's driving you crazy right now?
EDIT: After 45 minutes of nobody answering, I gave up. I guess I'll call back on Monday.
Apparently my mom got a puppy or something, and she keeps texting me and telling me to name it.
What would be a good name for this puppy?

Also, below is a list of address changes I need to make. Is there anything I'm forgetting?

Anyone got any recommendations?

Also, if you've seen They Live, would you recommend it?
What do you do and is it enjoyable?
Graham walked to school at an average speed of 3 miles an hour and jogged back along the same route at 5 miles an hour. If his total traveling time was 1 hour, what was the total number of miles in the round trip?
I need to know how to do it.
My skin's pretty sensitive and tends to be on the dryer side than oily. However, for the past 2 weeks I've gotten breakouts all over my forehead and part of my left cheek. I used to use Cetaphil cleanser and lotion, but I switched to Artistry essentials 3-step skin care system back in May. It's worked fine until now and I'm wondering if my skin is rejecting it. Could it also be the weather (it's been very hot and humid here in VA) or my careless diet? I'm definitely trying to drink lots more water as well. It's just making me super self-conscious, esp when my SO is super close to my face, heh.
My boyfriend wants one for his birthday and I've always been in charge of his cake. I want it to be amazing!
What did they say?
Was it mortifying or not a big deal?
Were/are those subjects "taboo" with your family?
My mom handed me some outdated book on the subject when I was 11 or so, with the implicit suggestion that I should read it but NEVER MENTION IT AGAIN. Needless to say, all that stuff was semi terrifying to me for awhile.
But the best thing about summer is BARE FOOTSIES Y/N?
Did you find anything?
My bf said he was busy until monday with work. Then he texts me today how he's hanging out with this girl (slut who tried to steal my ex a while back) and how she's 'touching him' like grabbing his dick..ugh. What do I say to that? And he was going to see a movie with her and a group tonight. He said he's going to cancel but how can I trust him?
Should I dump his ass?
Has this ever happened to you or someone you know?
Aside from the obvious of course - I'm getting enough sleep, my iron levels are ok and my other tests came back ok, but I'm so tired.
What foods/drinks do you enjoy now but you used to hate?
If so, can anyone link me to said image? Yes I've tried google. Maybe I fail at it? Y/N?
is it weird or logical to eat before going out for dinner when you're on a tight budget and don't want to be hungry and get very much at the restaurant?
my mom and sister are randomly in town and want to go to dinner but i don't have enough mad money this paycheck to be eating out. i told them this and my sister goes, "We can share someting." so i'm just loading up on Dorito's and water, so when i get there i'll just be happy with whatever and a soda or something.
should i prank my family and tell them i'm anorexic when i don't order anything?
what do you do?
what three things would you wish for if you could not wish for material wealth?
It's on right now and I'm pretty sure this will be my 100th time watching it. I just love it.
Alternatively: Where was your first job?
in todays economy a Batchelors is almost useless...you need a Masters to get a decent job? Y/Y?
What must no laptop/computer be without (software/anything else wise)?
DK/DC: What was the last complaint you made?
And if you don't complain, why not? Does nothing ever make you THAT annoyed?
I complained regarding my accidental damage cover, as they lost my laptop twice, didn't fully repair it the one time so it had to go back and they never actually met the promises they made in the insurance contract
Any advice on where to look?
Any particular models you would advise for or against?
Near me I have a Walmart, Target, Big Lots, Bob's Discount Furniture, Rent a Center, Ikea, Home Depot, all your general places to buy inexpensive furniture.

What could I get them for a wedding gift? I would like to get them something that is a bit different from standard wedding gifts
when you are married they use you as their personal baby-maker.
Edit: What fandom is it?
If so, how long of a lunch hour do you have?
"It was so obvious no organized system for marriage existed in the West that people simply failed to blame the obvious for why they couldn't find someone to marry. They were told by their therapists and their friends that it was because they were too neurotic, too unhappy, had to work on themselves before they could be happy with someone else, or that they wanted it too badly. People are told to blame themselves, and they do: they try to lose weight, they develop new interests, they get a nose job. We wonder what's wrong with us when really we should wonder whether there isn't a better way of doing things. It is a curious misplacement for a self-congratulatory culture in which people are constantly trying to shift blame away from themselves."
What does tqc think of this critique? What are your views of the alternative method of finding a mate in arranged marriages?
Also- What would you say is your favorite scent?

Do you have different ringtones for different people?
I just got a new phone and can't decide what to put on the background. I have personalized ringtones for most people in my contacts. My message tone is Castiel from Supernatural saying "Hey Assbutt!"
What is something you feel awesome about right now?
I bought a ukulele yesterday and I am loving it! I've never played a string instrument before but I'm doing ok picking it up and have a bunch of chords memorized, I just need to get used to switching between them cleanly.
Have you ever played a ukulele?
if not, you should, because I think its impossible to be sad when messing around with one.
What songs should I learn to play on my cute little new musical addition?
I have Foundations by Kate Nash up at some point, and I'm basically done with You and I by Ingrid Michaelson.
What should I name my uke? (For reference, my Bflat tuba is a Miraphone and he is named Klaus.)
And then say something you like about yourself? There has to be something.
I'm in the middle of purchasing a home and all the numbers are keeping me up at night.
Optional question: Do you recognize the icon and enjoy Numeroff as much as I do? XD
I have never seen one, and I do not have the tools to make one...but I was wondering if anyone else thinks this is a smashing idea.
If you received a letter from someone that said this, what would you think?
I think that you're afraid to look in my eyes
You look a little sad boy, I wonder why
I follow you around but you can't see
You're too wrapped up in yourself to notice
So you choose to look the other way
Well, I've got something to say
Don't try to run I can keep up with you
Nothing can stop me from trying, you've got to
Open your heart to me, baby
I hold the lock and you hold the key
Open your heart to me, darlin'
I'll give you love if you, you turn the key
Do you think people are impressionable enough to treat lyrics as if they were some sort of life guidance?
If so, at the current rate that popular music is going, what guidance do lyrics have to offer?
When the phrase "Upstate New York" is used, what area do you assume the speaker refers to?
I'd like to go somewhere where we wouldn't really need a car. We're in New York but can pretty much fly anywhere that wouldn't be ridiculous for a 3-4 day trip.
Any suggestions for places to go?
