Also, should I look for a new job?
Ladies; When was the last time you multi-tasked and what were you doing?
(I just brushed my hair & teeth at the same time)
Guys: Do you like to pretend you can multi-task?
For those of you who have to take many pills a day, many pills at the same time each day, how do you combat nausea?
I've been on a meds regime for the past several months where I have to take seven pills every night right before bed. Eating helps combat the nausea afterwards, but the pills are so large, so disgusting to taste, that I get nauseous hours before I take them. Just thinking about pills will make me nauseous for hours. If it weren't happening to me, I'd think it was an interesting example of classical conditioning.
However. My Doc has been totally useless. What do I do to make myself less nauseous?
Anymore, it's been Molson Canadian, goddamn I feel like Canadian white trash, but it's cheap as hell and actually tastes decent.
Do you have a junk drawer?
Do you love sauteed mushrooms?

What cartoons from your childhood do you still enjoy/would enjoy watching today? Meaning stuff that was intended for kids, not Adult Swim type cartoons. I basically listed mine up there.
PS I SEE YOU GOOD
if you are in the same time zone as me, why are you still awake?
Have you ever bought International editions of text books before? Have you ever had any issues with them? Are they really the same?
I'm contemplating going that route because it is a little bit cheaper than renting....
ETA: Students...do you rent or buy your textbooks?
Are you afraid of lighting?
What are your religious beliefs (or non religious beliefs)?
Why do you believe what you believe (or why don't you believe)?

I know these questions get asked frequently. I just have a genuine interest in this subject.
My mom used to always make lima beans, UUUUUGGGGHHHHH WHHYYYYYY!!!!! I STILL HATE THEM!!!! D: D: D:
I love starting controversial topics like this one:
A baby costs $785 a month which is $170,000 over 18 years. Just saw that from a commercial. Scary.
What kind of controversial topics do you like starting?
What should I get?
I've been reading a lot of Chuck Palalalanuik and Orson Scott Card lately. Something that's part of a short series would be nice, but is not required.
Today is supposed to be 83* with scattered thunder storms. Should I take the dog to the dog park and have her get out some of the excess energy that she's been misbehaving with?
What is the least fun thing you have to do today?
The most fun?
Would you rather read about a German chemist who synthesized aspirin or an American driller who became the first to drill for oil in the US?
I have an appointment and I'm not looking forward to it because I probably have a ton. :(
Worst nightmare you've had?
Is your workplace accepting of body modifications (tattoos, non-standard ear piercings, body piercings, scarification, etc.)? What type of setting do you work in?
Can someone give me the address where I can upgrade my account to a paid one. I tried it with the link at the bottom of the page and everything, but when I was about to pay (using paypal) I was offered a registration for the card. The problem is I already have a card, I don't need to create a new one...
Is there another way to pay for the upgrade? :/
... excuse me my stupidity, doing this for the first time, I need some help. Thanks in advance!
When you're waiting for something totally awesome to come in the mail, how do you behave? Do you go about your day and check the mail whenever you have time, or do you make multiple trips around the delivery time to see if it's in the box?
Alternatively, have you ever watched a pot of water boil?
The job is okay but the long commute is burning me out. I never seem to get enough sleep and it's hard for me to get things done in the few hours I have at night. It's also an extra $200 a month just to get to work.
If they do offer me a job, would it be out of line to request that I work from home a few days a week? Everything I do at my job is done online. Also, 2 other employees work from home.
If they made me an offer, should I:
a) Say no and find another job closer to my house
b) Take the job and deal with the commute
c) Bring up the possibility of working from home
How about getting engaged? How long should a couple be together before that comes up?
This question brought to you by the woman who was just in our office for an interview and nearly gassed everyone out because of how nauseatingly strong her perfume was.
How frequently do you wash your bedsheets/blankets?
Is there anything you wash/dry in your washer or drier that is out of the ordinary?
Hookers and blow are already en-route.
However, my wife travels extensively for her job, so she has a huge pile of frequent-flier miles saved up. If we buy full-priced tickets on the right airlines, we'll use her miles to get free upgrades to business class. This is going to be a slightly grueling series of flights--we're looking at over 24 hours in total transit time, with 6, 7, and 9 hour legs. But to be eligible for the upgrades, we'll have to pay more for the tickets in the first place (probably $2000 each). So my questions are:
1. Is the business class upgrade, in your opinion, worth an extra $1000+ in total expenses?
2. Does that change when you hear that even with the higher price tag, it still allows us to get business class tickets for about 1/4 what they would normally cost?
3. How much would it be worth to you?
4. Would you prefer an itinerary with only one stop, but an overnight layover (arriving at midnight and leaving the next morning), or two changes of plane but shorter connection times (an hour and a half for one, two hours for the other)?
Basically, I'm torn between feeling like we could get a really good deal on business class tickets (because, again, this would be really cheap for business class), and preferring to save on the total cost. My wife is more horrified than I am about spending ~24 hrs in coach, and thinks the comfort will be worth it.
What is the funniest real first name you have ever heard of?
When my sibs and I were young my dad would move the seat back and let us sit on his lap. He would do the pedals and we would steer. And this was all on winding country roads with nothing around but trees.
DK/DC: Besides bills and necessary expenses, where do you spend most of your money? I feel an online shopping spree coming on.
So, TQC, what could possibly have done this? Any ideas? I can't think of any animal that'd leave stripped bones behind like that. Not one that lives in South Eastern Pennsylvania, anyway.
My longest is "Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's stone" audio book at 6 hours and 37 minutes the longest song is a 17 minute version of Iron Butterfly's In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
How old is too old to start playing sports? Where can an adult go to learn? Who do you play with when you're this age? I would sign up for a PE class at school but my schedule won't allow me to add any more units.
And if anyone knows anywhere that would help me specifically in the Sacramento area, please let me know! =)
If you didn't get dental insurance from your parents/significant other/job and you REALLY NEEDED IT, where would you get it from?
I just cracked a coconut and when I tasted the juice, it wasn't as sweet as I expected it to be. I haven't had one since I was little though, so I'm not sure if I remember right. I'm afraid it might've gone bad. I have no idea how old it is, it was a gift from my mother-in-law who had bought it and then realized she would never get around to eating it.
What do you do with unwanted gifts?
I usually regift or give them to thrift stores to avoid clutter. But yesterday, while pondering what to do with a particularly impractical wallet, my mom suggested leaving it on my window ledge. It got 'stolen' within fifteen minutes, by a very nice looking couple with a small infant in a stroller, after the dad peeked into my window to make sure nobody was watching.
Well, sort of. A few weeks after the break up, he sent me an e-mail with nothing but a link to a YouTube video in it. It was of that octopus that steals a camera from some diver. But...it was just the link, nothing else.
A few weeks after that, he did the same thing, this time, it was a video of a really cute puppy from Korea.
A few days ago, I got another video, but this one was an animated short about a prostitute who becomes a superhero. It was...kind of gross and weird and violent and I didn't enjoy it too much.
And in every e-mail, all there is the link. No, "Hey, how's it going? Saw this, thought of you," or "Something to make you smile" or "I hope you burn in hell, bitch," or ANYTHING, just the link.
Why is my ex-boyfriend sending these weird e-mails? What is he trying to tell me?
What should I say in reply to the latest e-mail he sent me?
Until boyfriend comes to jump it, I'm stuck here- should I clean the apartment or be lazy and watch TV?
I already walked the dog and played fetch with her in the parking lot.
How do you organize your bookshelves?
would you date someone who is mentally retarded/deficient?
In Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham, the narrator is hounded across the planet by Sam I Am, a persistant breakfast salesman. Why is the narrator so opposed to trying green eggs and ham?

DK/DC: When was the last time you were ill? What was wrong with you?
Are you in tights?
Do you roam around the forest looking for fights?
DKDC: Do you know how to knit?
TL;DR : When was the last time you vacuumed?
Do you use it until it's almost gone? Or do you always have like half/three quarters of a bottle of gluey-gloppy polish to throw away? How much does this piss you off?
When is the last time you changed/painted your fingernails?
Do you start with the left hand first or the right hand first? Are you a righty or lefty?
What do you think of the matte polishes?
Have you ever had a design airbrushed onto your nails?
Really just to make me feel better.
I'm making banana bread and crying inside as I watch it spill over the top of the loaf pan and all over the bottom of the stove. :(
And I'm opening the windows.
-SUCCESS!- The bread came out fine. The stove is now clean. Whew.
Which mood theme should I make?
Should the mood them be animated or still?
If you don't own a car, what is you favorite way to pass time in a waiting room?
2) Computer Science?
2a) A related major that I didn't mention?
3) If you belong to one of the two groups above, and have graduated, are you working in your field?
4) For everyone else who doesn't fit the criteria above (i.e. DK/DC): My glasses broke this weekend, and even though I tried to fix them with duct tape, they keep falling off my face. The screw has broken off and part of it is in the hinge. Is it worth it to buy a repair kit and try to force the bit o' screw out and put a new one in? Do I need to get a specific screw size, or do all "eyeglass screws" fit all eyeglasses. Or should I just do a better job ducttaping my glasses? Do you want to see pictures of the damage to help inform your answer?
5) Does anyone think of Poker Face when they hear Kids by MGMT?
as a white person, is this acceptable?
DK/DC: What summer shows are you watching?
ETA: What do you do when you're feeling stuck?

What does it take for someone to lose your respect?
I just opened the door on someone and hurt the shit out of her foot, I saw it in her face. I felt REALLY bad.
PM me your address and I'll send you one!
When is the last time you gave into temptation?
any tips to combat motion sickness while still enjoying crazy thrill rides? i will probably stay off the super spinning ones, but i want to go on as many other ones as possible. will dramamine be enough? i've also heard ginger could be effective, but what's the best way to take it?
I need something to keep all my shit together, I have really limited space, and I keep reading mixed reviews of these products everywhere. =/
Have any of you gone on BC solely or primarily to get really bad periods under control? Has it worked for you? I actually had to leave work today because the pain was so intense I couldn't do my job, and this really needs to stop. Do you have any tips on specific things I should talk to my doctor about, when I go? Certain brands that work better for this than others? Were the side effects, if you experienced any, worth it?
I've never gone on BC before because I was afraid of potential side effects, but at this point as long as the side effects don't include nearly passing out at work, I'm down.
dk/dc Can you make me feel better about having to leave two hours into my only full shift this week?
I just fixed my glasses (the broke at the hinge) with hot glue and duct tape (to keep it while it sets and to hide the ugly globs). Is this safe? How long will it last? Any other info?
When was the last time you rode a horse? (Summer 2008, a friend taught me how to ride :) I have promptly forgotten :()
So, how white are you?
According to the book, I'm 30% white.
Right now I'm eating spaghetti and rice yummmm.
I get the concept and I've seen the website, but idg why it's funny. One of my friends tried mansplaining how it's super hilarious but by the end it was even less amusing.
2. Who's your favorite "Jr" celeb (e.g. Robert Downey, Harry Connick, Cuba Gooding, etc)?
Thirds, fourths, and non-celebs are welcome too, I GUESS.
3. Do you hate opening buscuit tins (or croissant, cinnamon roll, whatever)?
When they burst open all loud and violent it gets me EVERY TIME. I end up grabbing the peeling corner by the very tip and basically throwing it across the room hoping the impact of landing will break it open and it won't be in my hands when that happens...
4. Will you post a sentence that will determine what my note about you will be?
MAKE IT GOOD.
Have any of you *successfully* redeemed this card? I know it's only a hundred bucks, but I'm sure you all know how quickly small moving expenses add up... it'd just be nice to have. And it would just kind of suck if they're advertising it all over their website and never deliver. >:T
Not completely unrelated, will you tell me about the worst roommate you ever had? Why were they so awful?
Why does eating a whole box of macaroni and cheese always seem like such a good idea at the time?
When was the last time you overate?
I was working out next to a girl who had put ON makeup and did her hair just to workout.
Made me and my sweaty self feel quite hideous.
Okay, okay. I'll admit. I'm a little insecure when she is next to me and it bugs me.
DKDC: How was your Monday? I want to know all about it.
*edit to reword question
what should i eat that wont make me wanna vom?
OKAY THIS IS HARD TO WRITE
EDIT: Okay a bit more info might be required. I've gone on dates with the first person but haven't had sex with them yet. However the date later this week is me going round his for dinner, which is far away for a weeknight and would probably entail me staying the night. I've had sex with the second guy (slut I know) and I know it's all good, plus we've arranged a movie marathon for Friday night whereby we go and see Inception and then sneak in to the next screening of Toy Story 3. Oh and he's my optician.
ETA: What if it involved breaking a lease? What if you didn't have the money to move (and would have to borrow it from family)?
I need a new book to read. Looking for something suspenseful with a good twist/shock ending. Nothing too gory or fantasy-based (vampires, etc.). Think Shutter Island, by Dennis Lehane.
Have anything to recommend?
What should I eat with my tomato soup? I don't have bread so I can't make any grilled cheese sammiches.
What should I do?
I miss gardening and taking care of house plants (boo, apartments), and think it might be a good way to recycle liquor bottles, and a good excuse to buy some antique bell jars.
DK/DC: Coke or Pepsi?
( Collapse )
(inspired by the unattractive post before.)
What is your most played song?
Yeah, best question I could come up with right now...
I was getting out of the car tonight, saying bye to this guy who I have been seeing for the past month, and he says, "love ya babe". and he realizes that he said it, and then says that he didn't mean to say it because he doesn't think we're there yet with that term.
So I'm wondering if I'm slightly hurt by that because A) its a pride issue of some sort, and i want him to love me or B) because I really am falling for him and now I know he doesn't quite feel that way?
Is this a big deal or am I over thinking it?? (Any input would be helpful).
Will you tell me?
*Being asked has ZERO to do with health, he/she just wants you slimmer/smaller.
PS. Sorry for grammar
or songs that help you move on after a break up?
I'm a perfect 10 but my personality's shite
Would you rather read that or FML?
what do you do?
When I go to Lord of the Fries, I order a medium 'beef' burger and a small fries with Vietnamese (sweet chilli mayonnaise) sauce. Mm-mmm.
Tea queue sea, what film should I download/watch online?
I am currently watching Paranormal Activity and then I need to watch the rest of The Human Centipede but I need distractions tonight because I
may have failed my degree and I want to ignore that thought for as long as possible. I do not like icky soppy romantic thingz, ta.
2: With Memoirs of a Geisha is it better to read the book or splash out the £3 for the DVD, even though I think DVDs are a waste of £££?
So...what now? I know texting him and being "So I guess this is over" is kinda petty, but I hate not having finality.
I know there are bulider thingies, but is there anything I could use to play up volunteer work? I dont have much in the way of job experience, and the job I did have was sent to India and I have no idea what information I would put down to use that. the number address and everything are gone. So it seems pretty pointless. I dont even remember my supers name.
But I have TONS of volunteer work from libraries to hospitals to the local Secret Santa. That would look good right?
Is there a template out there somewhere that would help me?
1. What is the proper punctuation for the "I'll live without you" line?
2. What would be the correct way (both punc. and just if it sounds ok in general) to combine the two ("Returning the smile you had from the start, I'll live without you love but what good is one glove without the other?")
3. Does the "I'll live without you" line (without knowing the song probably and all) seem like it might look prettier in a more cursive font or a more laid back 'hand written' font?
dk/dc/none of that made sense: How do you feel about memorial tatts?
Mine's grackles. They may bomb the fuck out of my car each spring, but they are adorable.
Does everything eventually work out in the end?
How do you, personally, work through the hard times if you don't see a light at the end of the tunnel?
Sorry. I'm in a boo-hoo mood tonight, I've had a rough week.
Do you do it yourself, or does someone else do it for you? If someone else does it, how much do you pay for it?
How often do you do it?
Her previous owners called her Neko, which I think is cute but my mum doesn't like. Kitty is lucky she isn't a boy with blue eyes, else I'd be tempted to call her Linus.
I haven't had a cat in the house for years. It's so nice to have one around again, being nosy and cute.
