What was the last thing you did that was publicly embarrassing?
I'm really good at accidentally running into door frames in stores or standing in the way of someone and day dreaming and forgetting I should probably move. Then again they could just say "excuse me" instead of bumping into me to make a point.
besides people liking american cheese
Do you ever watch Shop Erotic?
who do you look up to and why?
Will you tell me some of your names/nicknames for things (pets, possessions, people), so I can gauge how creative and crazy you are?
I call my car Baby Bluey (she's blue..), call my bf Sausage Monster and have a hamster called Sir Humphrey Wigglebottom the First.
Dgaf: When do you last cuddle something? What was it?
2. While I'm at it, what videos are on your ipod/iphone? Besides the obvious porn, anyway.
Have any of you been ChaCha guides before? If so, would you care to elaborate on your experience?
me? oh just my doctor saying "its probabbbly not a brain tumor lol".
now i'm paranoid, thanks doctor.
Inspired by a comment made in reply to a post below: have you ever inappropriately called someone the wrong name? What happened and how did they take it?
Should I go to work today?
It's the last week of my internship and I've already missed three days. Two for something unrelated and one for this infection.
ETA: I just discussed the situation with a stuff member of my internship program, and she said I should stay home. She said that she'll give my employer a call and explain the situation.
What new things are you learning?
Also: Should I go apply for jobs today, or wait until I get back from vacation?
Is it a terrible idea?
(I am not considering this, I was just wondering.)
Leaving work on Friday, I found a little green plastic envelope beside my car; someone must have dropped it in the garage. It said "VA Lotto" on the side, so I picked it up. I forgot about it and looked at it this morning; it's Powerball picks (three sets of them) that someone must have set up to go make and never did.
Are you superstitious enough that you'd go to the store and get these powerball numbers?
Or would you throw it in the trash, dismayed that they weren't already-paid-for powerball tickets?
DK/DC - if one of your parents won the lottery (a big one - lots of millions) would they cash you in enough that you'd never have to work? What if it was an aunt/uncle? Sibling? BFF?
We're going to the UK. Same deadline, so we'll still need to be on the ball if we have any hope of moving all our crap by Christmas, but a completely different corner of the world.
Does anyone know anything useful about Herefordshire? Stuff to do? What's the housing like, if it's military? How much does stuff cost - basics like milk? Random things to know about the road rules that might be different to Australia?
I could figure something out if I were going to be a tourist, but I know diddly squat about actually living in the UK and I've only got six months to organise everything around the move. On that note, any random factoids that might help us make the transition from Australia to there would be appreciated.
Why do people refer to pamphlets and brochures as literature? For some reason I don't consider that kind of stuff literature... When I was in 6th grade I had to make a brochure to teach someone about something and I chose rabbits but I would hardly consider that literature.
I have found that some men don't think that someone is sick or needs to see a doctor unless they are green in the face, bleeding profusely, or obviously injured. Have any of you also come across this?
What sort of topics do you think I should educate myself on?
Is there anything other than games you suggest I do on the internet?
DK/DC: How is your Monday morning treating you?
or so i've been told.
true about life or not?
My boyfriend needs shirts done for his pulling truck. The only place in town that does them has a minimum order of 80; we only need about 15. We don't want to spend that kind of money (or waste that many shirts), so I want to try to do something on-line.
Any good (cheap-ish) sites for this?
Any free sites that have different fonts I can fiddle around with? He wants it to have "Twisted" on it and have the word look like it is twisted (like as if you were to wring a towel out if that makes sense- with the middle thinner). Is there anything like that?
Best "graphic" sites?
You're my last hope before his mother makes him a shirt that looks like it came out of the dollar store.
I mean in the way how NV posted what they'd uploaded daily, or maybe a site with recommendations because omg without Ninja Video I can't decide what to watch!
I'm naturally blonde but keep it brunette.
Did you recognize Don Swayze?
As soon as I hear the beep I start to think that there's message-leaving etiquette or something and I freak out and inevitably wind up stuttering or doing something else stupid.
Hell to the yes. I will put off making a call to a stranger or delivery service until the last possible minute.
Oppositely, are you OBSESSED with answering the goddamn thing every goddamn time it rings?
I ignore the fucker pretty much always. It drives me batshit when people interrupt real-life in-person conversations with me to answer the stupid phone. That's what answering machines are for.
dk/dc/bonus round: Do you watch Pawn Stars or American Pickers? If so, do you ever see stuff they buy/sell that you REALLY REALLY WANT?
Cuz I really really want that spoon made by Paul Revere. If I had $18000 to burn on a silver tablespoon.
What should I do today?
What kind of journals do you despise reading? (Or find it/them annoying to read)
Can you curse at work? If you are at work/school/church/situation where you can't curse, what words do you use instead?
I curse at work and usually it's fine, but if I have to tone it down I often say "BALLS!" or if I tone it down further I'll maybe say "SCHNIKEYS" or "FUDGE." One of my coworkers says "APPLESAUCE" and "SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!"
dk/dc is anyone else excited that the world cup is FUCKING OVER? thank god.
Has cancer taught you anything?
For those who don't know, it's when a bride does a photo session where she pretty much ruins the dress she wore on her wedding day.
For some reason I can't use the up and down arrows on my keyboard to scroll anymore, and wherever I click the evil blinky "why aren't you typing?" symbol from Word. I've tried turning the laptop off and on again, but what would TQC do?
my mom thinks yes, until divorce. i think it's completely circumstancial.
( Collapse )
What was the last duuuur thing you did? Someone else is fine too.
The other night I was really depressed and anxious and PMS-ing and drugged up, and I sent a Facebook message to this guy I acted like a jerk to, like, two months ago, asking if we could be friends again. I have no idea why I did that. >.< I'm so embarrassed.
Who is your absolute favorite person on the face of the earth? And why?
So far I've got pigs in a blanket for the bedroom, water-works punch (it's blue) for the bathroom, baby sandwiches for the FUTURE nursery, couch potato skins for the living room, and 'garden fresh veggie tray' for where the garden will be.
Edit: myownimprov suggested coffee for the office which is great, especially when you brew it dark and call it "Midnight Oil."
We have left:
DC: What is your favorite NES game/the first video game you beat?
I <3 The Legend of Zelda and the first game I ever beat was The Little Mermaid. Cuz my mom's a Disney dork.
How do I make this less noticeable? Note: I don't wear make-up, except for some foundation occasionally when I need to look professional.
Why does it seem they do it just after you've eaten, just before you eat or just after you've gotten comfortable in bed?
I am stuck in a rut with my hair... I've been trying to grow it out, so I am looking for a cut where I can still keep length, but have it be cute and stylish. Suggestions?!
Normally it is kind of wavy with sidebangs, and black.
(Also, hi, Im new)
( Collapse )
How about a Jewish character, should he be played only by a Jewish actor? Or an Italian?
Can you tell me something that will make me feel less nervous?
Also (since I would answer that if I saw it), when anyone on any interview asks you this, what do YOU say? I always get stuck on these questions.
What interview questions do you hate the most?
Why the hell would I spend money on something just to have it sent to not me?!
What's the appropriate action to take in this situation? Who can you file a complaint with?
Have you ever been involved in a medical mix-up?
And why must they breathe so loudly while eating?
What are some of your biggest pet peeves?
I applied for and was accepted to a master's program for this fall (it starts in a month, to be exact)
Now I've been going through some personal shit and I've just kind of been ignorant about the process as well, anyway long story short I didn't do anything in regards to financial aid. I got my acceptance like a week ago and so just now am I trying to evaluate whether this is feasible. Is it even possible to still apply for loans? I will be calling the financial aid office of the university, but I'd like to at least sound a little less stupid when I do so :/
do you believe people will leave the Earth to live on other planets, before the Sun, as part of its evolution, will become a red giant and burn all life on our home planet?
if no, do you think aliens would be able to recovery human artefacts such as lj servers, and read our entries, after landing on humanless Earth?
If you don't like _______________________, then I don't like you.
You are going to another country where you have to rent a car. The rental place will give you a stick shift for a decent price but the automatic costs aprox $300-400 more to rent.
Problem: You have never driven a stick before in your life. You leave for this vacation a week from Friday.
You know various people with manual cars but you panic because you don't think there is enough time to learn and feel comfortable driving in another country with stick.
Would you practice as much as possible and hope for the best or fork over the extra money to get an automatic and feel more at ease?
eta: After discussing with my husband I decided to spend the extra money so I can feel relaxed about driving in Italy on our honeymoon. He made the call to the rental place and the change will be made.
Will you post additional pictures of things you find sexy in your preferred gender(s)?
What was the last thing you ate that upset your digestive tract?
Do you swim in the ocean?
When is the last time you were at the beach? Which one?
WHY are there tampon applicators in the sand?
I'm so bad at it. My playlists usually end up separated by decade or I'll have a random playlist full of songs that I was in the mood for at the time I made it but don't care to listen to the whole playlist on a regular basis.
Soooooo, dear TQC, will you help me make an unbiased playlist by choosing a number between 1 and 3894?
It will correspond to a song currently on my iPod and the order of comments will be the order of the songs on the playlist.
2) Yesterday I bought a pint of Cherry Garcia in case of bad days. I ate about a quarter of it. It tasted kind of grainy, but I didn't think much of it until I turned it over for some reason and saw it expired in freaking March. Will I get sick from this? And should I bring it back to the store? I don't want to be one of those people who buy food and complain after already eating it...
3) HOW DO I GET BACK AT THE GUY WHO TRIED TO BLAME HIS STUPID MISTAKES ON ME AT WORK???
DK/DC: Will you post things to make me feel better?
I designed square "save-the-date" cards, and I was wondering if it's okay to mail them without an envelope, but with just the recipient's address and a stamp on the back? Or will the post office not like that?
my friend and I can't decide what 2 see.
What do you dislike about the people in your life? How come?
Do you get prints of all/most of the images, or just a select few?
I have so many pictures and want to get them printed, but have no idea which ones to choose or what is the cheapest/easiest way to go about it. Any tips?
Which of you would refuse to use a dating site even if you couldn't find a SO?
Have you ever used a dating site? Which one? Did you like it?
(When I vote for them, I make an educated decision; I don't just vote randomly or to screw up the system or anything like that. I take voting for them seriously just like I do any other elected official.)

Feel free to make fun of me but I feel that this is SERIOUS BUSINESS.
To make a long story short this guy I met gave me his roomate's phone number because his own phone had been stolen. I also gave him my number on a piece of paper. We met on Friday and I still haven't heard from him. Would it be super weird to call his roomate to speak with him? This is so anxiety inducing.
If you are not interested in answering, what is your recipe for a good nights sleep?
What size is your mattress?
Is it any special brand/style?
How much did it cost?
I want one of the cheap ones (no keyboard, doesn't need a camera) but I don't want one that's going to fall apart either.
Any recommendations? Any I should avoid?
DC/DK: What is the weirdest street name you've ever encountered?
I seem to need a new pair of shoes every six months. I think it's because I tend to drag my heels somewhat when I walk, so the heels always wear out really fast.
do you babysit?
what's your current occupation? are you happy with it?
How do you get rid of heartburn? I'm currently living on the tums.
any style would work
I have also found that snapping a rubber band against your skin when you feel like cutting is entirely useless (actually hurts more, but provides none of the emotional satisfaction, so I don't get the point).
What are some commonly stated/suggested things which just don't work for you, which you get annoyed about when people keep fucking suggesting?
are rhetorical questions okay in tqc?
if not. whats a fun fact thats a conversation starter
What was the last piece of music that moved you to or near to tears? Why?
What is the next album you're going to buy/download/pirate?
What is your current favourite song? Why?
DK/DC: What type of mp3 player do you have? Brand, storage capacity, and year?
Um, some rap/hip-hop. Examples: Insane Clown Posse, Eminem, Jay-Z.
Not Afraid - Eminem. It makes me feel like I can do anything I set my goals on.
I plan to buy the new Eminem album. I just need to google the name and I'm good. :)
Not Afraid - Eminem. Previous answer + it sounds and gives such a hopeful feeling. It's a beautiful thing, and it sounds real and not postured.
I own an iPod, it can hold 30 gigs of stuff, and it's ancient. it's from 2005. :/
if you haven't yet, how old are you?
i'm 22 and it feels weird to call myself a woman. : /
2. What things do you do when you want to feel sexy?
3. From 1 to 10, 10 being super attractive, where do you think you fall?
4. How about your current/most recent SO?
SRS/NON SRS answers welcome.
If you don't care. Cake or Death?
How much do they cost? Where do you buy them? What are the conditions on them?
What trait do you find least desirable/most annoying in someone else?
What is your favorite activity?
Did you know i turn 18 in roughly one hour? :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
What should i do for my birthday tomorrow? I'm already going out for breakfast and hanging out with a friend. Preferably nonsrs answers.
what do you think? should i just not even get my hopes up because it's a salvaged car? what would you do?
Edit: How do you fall asleep in really hot weather? My window is wide open and I have a fan running at top speed.
Blueberry is mine.
(Disclaimer: She is a really GOOD friend, and I don't want to break things off, but I'm just tired of her saying she feels left out when I go do something fun with someone else...)
DK/DC: Who's your favorite late night show host? Stewart and Colbert count, obviously.
How do you shake the blues?
I just got back from Wal-Mart and was going to burn a movie to disk so I could watch it on my big tv and iTunes tells me if I want to play what I'm burning on something not a computer, I should use a DVD-R disk. Do I throw things in a fit of rage or happily burn my disks and go watch movies?
( Collapse )
What accessories should I wear? and what colour should I paint my nails? I'm drawing a blank haha. I usually do my nails bright pink or red, but I don't think that will work, or would it be fine?
Also, would it be appropriate for me to wear these shoes
http://www.aldoshoes.com/ca-eng/women/sandals/fashion-flats/77966516-madison/80 for the reception part? I have some nude pumps I'll probably wear to the ceremony but I want to be comfy for dancing and I don't have flats that aren't black. Should I buy some?
Or if you work in customer service, tell them?
