why does my stomach hurt? (srs/nonsrs)
Which of these is true?
EDIT: This is not my party, I'm just asking for a friend. Her sister is adamant about holding it at this restaurant.
What is a tactful way to word this on an invitation?
Or is it just implied that you'd have to pay for yourself?
Have you even been to such an event?
Did you expect to pay for yourself or did you expect your host to take care of it?
they only knocked once and then they left after i didn't answer.
who could it have been? who knocks on someone's door at midnight?
Getting pregnant isn't an issue for me (I'm a virgin and I plan to stay that way for quite some time), so the notion of taking monthly pregnancy tests annoy the everliving fuck out of me. I understand why they have to do it, but still...
Anyway, my question is: have you ever taken Accutane? Did you have any side effects? Do you know anyone who did? Should I abort this mission before it's too late? Am I worrying too much? Is it worth it?
Guys, can you help me out with picking color schemes for this place??
here are the pics (current guy's stuff, not mine!)
What do you think?
[Edit: The bathroom will be brown/sea-foam green. The bedroom must be white and purple. I want the living room to also be purple (the couch I want is purple) but other than the couch I don't know how to work other colors in. I don't care about the colors for the kitchen and dining room.

I need to go for a walk tomorrow and my earbuds press right against it and it HURTS.
What's the worst place to get a zit?
Do you get satisfaction out of popping them?
I really want to help but I can't think of anything. What can she do? Has anyone ever been in a similar situation? Any advice I can give her, or any resources she can use? If it makes any difference, she lives in New York and our university is in PA (in case anyone knows of state aid that can kick in in less than a month). Google isn't helping much.
[ETA:] She's already up to her head in loans so she's trying to avoid adding more to the pile. I know that makes it extra difficult, since loans seem to be the only option here ):
I checked a ton of labels today and the best I found was Special K, which really isn't that great.
what'd you do besides get drunk and/or gamble?
Am I gonna fucking die now???
Have you ever taken anything that expired? What happened to you?
The Legend of Korra

*would you go look?
DK/DC: have you ever had an icon war?
What books are really important to you?
is the full moon the reason why my roommate is being so erratic?
My mom's lawyer friend just told me that if you take the bar exam in New York, you can practice law anywhere in the country. What is the accuracy of that statement?
Sources so far indicate no, but I'm still clinging to hope. Just cause I like the idea.
What's your favorite style of architecture?
Definitely art deco.
What's a surprising/funny fact about your parents?
My 62-year-old, incredibly austere mother loves Green Day, and will occasionally beg me to put on "21st Century Breakdown." I think it's hilarious.
There's a huge.. colony of them on the outiside of my bedroom window. There's more and more of them each day, i think theres a nest just about my window. I'm pretty scared of spiders, so every time i open my blinds it's horrible, and i just want them gone. I can't even open my window for fresh air because they all come in the gap and i've just had to kill 3 with a dvd case.
TQC, what can i do to get rid of them? My rooms on the first floor, making outdoor access to them a bit tricky.
( Collapse )
Inspired by the fact that a spider just climbed up my shoulder. :(
Also, how could I best discourage spiders from setting up camp in my room?
Another tried to join me on my beanbag earlier! GO AWAY SPIDERS.

[If you haven't seen the movie, a Russian woman's son is helping the Russians by being a "double agent"; making the Germans think he's giving them intel, when he's really gleaning it to pass on to the Russians. When the Germans find out, they kill him. Rather than tell his mother that he's been found out and killed, the Russian political officer tells her that he's turned traitor and gone over to the Germans for good. The mother is joyful/relieved to hear it, saying "At least he's still alive."]
So, the question:
In such a situation, a time of war when your own country/city is under attack, would you, as a parent, rather know that your child was killed defending his homeland, or be told that he's alive, but as a traitor?
Personally, I'd prefer the former.
what do you think would influence a parent to stop doing these things?
what kind of work outs do you do? how often?
Where/how should I be looking to find private donors or organizations that give international education grants to individuals?
What do YOU think are necessary topics or concepts to cover in elementary school science (they have never learned any science before, and I'm not sure some of them will learn any after this either)?
Do you have any tips for teaching science to kids with very limited materials and language barriers (the kids are taught by a lot of volunteers that don't speak Quechua, their native language...)
(Also, don't worry - I am doing a lot of actual research and talking to actual teachers too, not just the internet)
I have A LOT of makeup and it's all over the place, I need a better storage/organization arrangement.
ETA: When I made the appt, they asked if I wanted a blood test. I said "I dunno, do I need one?" and the nurse said "well I'll schedule you one anyway" and now they're calling telling me that if I "want" a blood test, I can't eat today. How should I know if I need one??
DK/DC: Do you believe consequences will never be the same?
How stressful has your Monday been? Anything to bitch about?
Please tell me TQC, what did I do to screw up my laptop?
2. If you've seen Shutter Island and Inception, which one did you like better?
3. You enter a 1 person bathroom at work. There is 1 toilet and 1 sink. However, there is also a divider with a door like the ones you see in public bathrooms. Do you close the door to the divider as well or do you leave it open?

Why do people still use fax machines? Email is more environmentally friendly. And cash friendly; I have to go to the library and spend 2$ a fax!
ETA: What if I don't have a contact name, just a business name?
If so, what did it say?
If not, what would yours say if you did?
Edit: I can register after 1, 3 at the earliest, and I will, I'm just scared I'm not going to get the classes I need.
Are you losing your shit over anything?
Wtf do I do?
Will you register for me while I go to the interview? thnx bb.
I'll add ice cream to the bribe for anyone who actually knows what the heck they're doing (this is my first experience doing it).
Or else describe what it looks like?
dk/dc - What's your favorite room in your house and why?
What do you wish you could change about your house?
What was the last movie you watched?
How do you deal with someone that gets cold feet every time you make plans to hang out?
I need to clean this place from top to bottom to make sure I get my security deposit back.
It's not particularly dirty, just has a years worth of living in.
Any tips on packing to move?
You're dating a new guy. He's really handsome, charming and funny. He's so your type and you two hit it off immediately and within a week are almost finishing each other's sentences and talking for hours on the phone. You just connect like crazy, unlike any previous boyfriend. However, you haven't slept together yet. He says that he just got out of a bad relationship and wants to take this one slow, so you're waiting. After a month, when you guys are inseparable, he says that he thinks he's ready to have sex. It's getting hot and heavy and you two hop into his bed, when you make a discovery: he has a really small penis. It's like smaller than your pinky. He confesses this was the real reason why he took it slow, to make sure that you wouldn't bolt out the door upon sight of his lil lumber. But now that you've seen his tiny Vienna sausage of a wiener, what happens now?

Also, if you can, could you include your ring size and

If you've seen the movie, why the hell is Jim naked in a hospital bed in the opening of the movie?
Don't hospital patients usually wear something?
Did the Infected steal his gown or something?
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, what was the last movie you watched on VHS?
I've been trying to get into the Army for the last 8 years, but keep getting denied because of some really old medical history. This weekend we went to my brother-in-law's birthday party (he's an Army helo pilot). Him and all his flight school buddies were sitting around talking about how much they hate the new uniforms, and I was just sitting there thinking to myself, "I'd give anything to have one, ugly or not."
So, the question I pose to you, TQC:
Have you ever had someone take for granted/not appreciate/not take care of something that you would give anything just to have? What was it?
If not, favorite lines?
Listening to this right now:
My old friends, I can remember when
You cut your hair, I never saw you again
Now the cities we live in could be distant stars
And I searched for you in every passing car
-Arcade Fire, Suburban Wars.
Anyone know what it could be?
Have you ever had to regularly cook for two people trying to eat healthier foods? What do you usually cook?
My SO and I are trying to eat out less and stay in more, but the only things I can think of cooking are spaghetti and things involving rice.

What style should I write it in?
srs/non srs :D
Also, should I be excited that I won a Macintosh Classic II off the ebays? Any good software titles should I look to get for it?
I have been watching it since season 3. I missed the first two seasons because NFNS didn't really catch my attention at the time, but then I tuned in to the season 3 premiere and I couldn't stop watching.
I am rooting for Brad because he has a great smile and except for some problems early on, he cooks pretty well for such a young guy. His food seems so elegant but at the same time, it looks easy to prepare. He needs a little polishing when it comes to interacting in front of the cameras and if he continues to improve on that, he's won me over. Aarti is a close 2nd.
FN could use more chefs of different ethnic backgrounds (especially Asian and Indian). There are too many Italian, American, and Latin/Mexican chefs on there and way too many BBQ/Grilling shows. I have nothing against those groups of foods. I just want to see more variety. I would love to see someone who could make healthy food taste great, as well as someone who can show me how to cook for diabetics or people with other health issues.
Also, I wish for less loud, over the top personalities like Paula Deen, The Neelys, and Rachael Ray. I want to learn to cook and be entertained. Annoying catch words like "EVOO" or "Y'all!" in almost every sentence and Paula and the Neelys' sexual innuendos make me want to gag. When their shows come on, I change the channel.
DK/DC: What are your favorite foods? If you ordered out, what would you get?
I love baked macaroni and cheese and meatloaf (I made a really good one the other day w/ turkey instead of ground beef and I didn't notice any difference in the taste), spaghetti and meatballs w/ some butter and lots of Parmesan cheese mixed in, cheesecake, and chocolate chip cookies. I am trying to cut back on take-out, but if I do order it, I like sushi, curry shrimp, or pepperoni pizza w/ extra cheese.
I just paid my car registration and haven't been in any accidents. What could it be?
My brother and I were talking about this the other day and he mentioned a Dutch film that was ranked the scariest movie ever on some site or something. We were with my two high-school aged nephews and he wouldn't even tell us what it was about!(more for them than for me, because he didn't want them to look it up) He said he didn't even want to talk about it. Now I'm curious, does anyone know the film he's talking about? He wouldn't say the name of it or anything in front of my nephews and I forgot to ask him about it later.
Will you tell me something interesting about yourself?
If it's above 1, what is your footcare regime?

So, I've come to ask you, TQC
1. Have you ever joined a dating site/service?
2. What was your experience of it?
3. Were there some decent prospects on these sites, or are most of them desperate, physically ugh or possibly insane?
4. Did any of your dates lead to anything worthwhile?
5. Should fourcorners date, or should he be kept segregated from the fairer sex?

What about a used tampon perfume?
Apparently it's nothing like a standard Peaches show up until "the final act when Peaches was raised on to a wet-looking twenty foot tall crucifix with a penis at the top and a clitoris at the bottom. She sings the finale dangling above the stage as a chorus of queer dancers shimmy around her and the hermaphroditic religious object waving their hands in the air in praise of Peaches"
TQC, I agree that this sounds shitty, I don't even know why I want to see it.
Do you put anything on it that makes it special?
What do you eat it with, if anything?
If you don't like tuna: what's your favorite kind of sandwich?
There will be no "fuck twilight" option... you MUST CHOOSE!
Team Edward or Team Jacob?
I can use the stove top since it's gas, but as there is no A/C and my apartment is boiling, I don't want to stand there over fire for too long. Hopefully I can find a grocery store that has a generator and didn't lose all their food overnight. :/ Going out isn't really an option either, no local (within 20 miles) restaurants seem to have power, and driving is a pain with all the stop lights out.
Also, female orange tabby cats are rare and often cantankerous (usually orange tabbies are males.... or aliens). Does anyone here have a female orange tabby cat? I do. She can be bitchy, but most of the time I love the shit out of her anyways.
DK/DC: What are your goals for this week, if any?
I bet y'alls are lining up, right?

ETA: I've only started using FF about 2-3 weeks ago (although I've had it installed for at least six months), and I know I've never changed any settings, so I don't think it's something I did. And it's the latest version before the version that's currently out now (I never upgraded)
ETA: AHA! it's an add-on that I never downloaded, and it's somehow installed and active. I disabled it, and the split screen function and option on the toolbar disappeared. I have no idea how it got there in the first place, though

What are some things that taste delicious cold other than sandwiches?
What are some sandwiches that hold up well to being pre-made?
Have you had any luck with using a thermos to keep hot foods hot for a few hours? What have you kept hot?
Will you share a picture of your tattoo/explanation of why you got it?
What kind of piercings do you think are best on males?
And a non body-mod related question:
Played any office pranks lately?
I connected to an unused computer and used it's text to speech to say things at people as they walked by. It would have worked out if I weren't cracking up in the corner to give myself away
SO, how should we handle the food situation?
Trail mix and fruit are good for the trails, and granola bars for breakfast, but what can we bring along that doesn't need to be chilled or heated for lunch and dinner?
(sandwiches are obvious, but they get squished and soggy super easy so I'd like to try something new)
Will I lose my man card?
What about my street cred?
What will the other geeks say?
(I'm asking because I've been friends with this girl for a little bit under a year. I went on a roadtrip with her and other friends about a week ago, but she was incredibly annoying, selfish, and wouldn't stop when we asked her to stop her annoying things. She pouted when we were doing things that she didn't want to do. She just soured the whole trip for everyone, and the other friend that I went on the trip with feels the exact same way: like we just can't imagine ourselves being friends with her after this!)
So what would you/what have you done in similar situations? Especially when you don't want to hurt anyone, you just want to split ways as amicably as possible. :( THANKS TQC, LOVE YOU.
1. How likely will I be to be doomed to do what I do now forever if I take another promotion in my field?
2. Do you know anyone who's moved into a completely new career track/category of work within a single company or organization? What did they do before/after? How did they make the switch?
3. How do you psych yourself up for interviews?

What's the worst damage you've ever had living in an apartment? Mine was the time my toilet flooded in my previous apartment. Ughhhh.
TQC, due to some a/c leakage, my wall currently looks like this:
( Collapse )
Is this going to stain? How do I make it not stain?
Also, yes I do have renter's insurance.
Maintenance people are currently looking into the situation. I have a neighbor above me so it's probably an issue with their a/c since I haven't even used mine in a few weeks because the breakers were broken. (That sounds weird, lol.) I noticed the leaking on... Saturday night I think? And put a request in on Sunday to fix both problems. Their idea of fixing the leak was to stick latex gloves or someshit in the hole in my closet, and we see how well that worked...
I just found out a girl I knew in high school named her daughter "Chaynae Bentley." Because giving your kid a car for a middle name really classes up "Chaynae," I guess.
Am I justified in my anger?

Justified? Or chill out?
My friend and I are going to NYC. We work together. One of our coworkers whom we both liked and got along with moved there sometime last summer-- we're debating asking if we can crash at her place. We're not particularly close (we are facebook friends!). Is this really rude? If not, how would you approach it?

What's the best decision you've ever made? Was it also your hardest?
My best and hardest decision was choosing to live with my dad in my parents' custody court case when I was ten years old.
How awkward is this going to be?
Do you ever/how often do you come across people who you decided weren't valuable in your life?
If you live in a different time zone than I, what's for breakfast or lunch?
does the guy being the one who doesn't remember change anything?
basically, should i tell my friend we banged Saturday night? i thought we just weren't talking about it but now i'm 99% sure he just doesn't remember. which i'm fine with, so i'd like some insight into whether that's maybe illegal(like, is that rape?), or maybe a little immoral.

Here's a better question as (if its a boy..) as my son will more than likely have his fathers last name, it will be Cunningham.
What would be a good first name to go with the middle name of Shane?
What made you laugh really hard today?
I didn't get sick though and I obviously didn't die. I FELT sick at the very thought of it, but my stomach was fine. I didn't end up puking or anything.
So, tqc, why didn't I get sick or die? Am I superhuman?
I have a 5 month old Himalayan and her coat is in pretty good shape but I had to give her a bath and she didn't want to let me brush out and dry her belly or back legs. She has one mat that I'm probably going to end up cutting out but I want to prevent more from showing up.
Do you like your face? What do you like about it, and what do you dislike about it?
Do you prefer short hair or long hair?

What do you get at Cold Stone? One just opened near my house, and I want to know what I should try.
I'm using Neutrogena pink grapefruit cleanser right now and it works well enough that my face is clean, but I'm always looking for something new to try.
I am going on 50+ (I lost count) hours without sleep now because the antibiotics I was on a few weeks ago gave me insomnia and fucked up my sleep schedule. I stupidly walked 5 miles uphill today and now I'm so tired that I might be slurring my words when I talk, lolol
