Is it magic?
Also, it's 85 degrees in our house and my 14 month old will not sleep because of it (and it's 1 am) do you have anything to cheer me up?
Have you ever regretted showing something to your parents? I completely regret getting them on Facebook. Dad isn't so bad; he uses it to keep up with his family across the country, but mom is a Farmville junkie. She not only plays on her account and dad's, but she's made a fake FB profile to play on. And she's one of those status bombers. Always commenting on every little thing and sucking the funny out.
What's your favourite peanut butter sandwich combo (or other nut butter)? Are you a classicist with pb and jelly/jam? Or do you go for something a little more unusual?
Did you know that Oscar Meyer (I think it was) used to have a bacon/peanut butter spreadable log? PB and bacon used to be a big thing, apparently.
I go for either cashew or sunflower seed butter with blackberry jam or peanut butter and french onion dip.
Do you like snakes?

1. Non-American TQCers, does your country have urban legends?
I've been wondering about this lately. In the US, we have a metric ton of them. (Bloody Mary, The Phantom Hitchhiker, Alligators in the Sewers and the Poodle in the Microwave to name a few.)
If so, where are you from and what are some of your favorites? Can you describe them?
2. For everyone, does your town/city have a "lady in white" ghost story? (She's a ghost who is dressed head to toe in white. She is always standing on the side of the road looking for a ride.) What's her background story in your town?
EDIT: I don't mean legends and myths. Everyone has legends and myths. I mean, modern stories. Stories that were created within the last fifty or so years. Hence; the poodle in the microwave story and not the story of the Thunderbird.
tqc, what have i missed in the past week?
please tell me everything.
this happened when i was around 8. my bed used to be positioned so i could look directly out into the hallway, and my parents' bedroom was directly across the hall from the bathroom. in the middle of the night once, i saw this stream of figures walking from my parent's room into the bathroom and back again, before my dad walked into the bathroom and out.
How much money do you have in your savings account? What are you saving it for?
If you don't have a savings account, where do you keep all your money?
I figure I should answer my own question: I have about $12,000 that I'm saving to live off of until I get a real job or until next summer.
DK/DC: what are you looking forward to?
I wear them around the house, but I feel a little bit sloppy wearing them out and about. I see other people wearing them all the time and think they look cute on them, but I feel hoodies make me look immature, like I should be wearing a real grown-up jacket or something instead. I am 25. AM I TOO OLD TO WEAR HOODIES IN PUBLIC?
What articles of clothing are you unsure of wearing?
(I've been at work 19 minutes and am already bored...)
What is freestyle masturbation?
dk/dc: what's the last big decision you made?
When you have to clean up around the house, what are the first things you do?
This world needs a confidence boost.
Use this post to talk about anything school related.
if so, which ones?
do you find them informative?
what do you think is most interesting phenomenon we have witnessed?
I have a bunch of bottles now that I'm painting my nails on a regular basis, and just have them in an Ulta bag. I hate having to dump them all out to find the one I'm looking for.
Tell me about it.
Oh! Also, last night I had a dream that there was a mass TQC-meetup and it was awesome. Have you ever had TQC related dreams?
Is it worth it to have the insurance in case I need to see a doctor or should I just wait to see if I get a job with coverage within the next few months?
So, I'm 22 and I'm crashing at my parents' place to save some $$$. I don't pay rent because they don't care and the idea is actually to save $$, I just have to be a productive member of the household
The problem is that my bedroom (which is the room I slept in as a kid and was refurnished as en extra guest room the minute I left for college) is painted this awful old lady PINK. And is decorated with with a picture of Obama and this giant ornate floral thing. So I was like "mom can I paint my room" and she was like "NO"
I mean, I get the ~their house their rules~ but she's just being a bitch and worried that I'm going to fuck up the molding or something.
1. So, how to I convince my parents that I deserve to live in a room that isn't nasty pink? I need TIPS
2. Also will you tell me your experiences with AT@T?
I'm a little annoyed about starting school next week, so would all you kind people please tell me something good about school, or your school memories/experiences to get me excited about school?
What kind of things should I look for in a laptop?
Do any of you play Pokemon on Nintendo DS? Do you wanna be my friend and trade Pokey-mans? My friend code is 3782 4083 6933.
DK/DC, What's your favourite flavour of poptart? Tie between S'mores and Cinnamon Brown Sugar. I'm eating a Frosted Strawberry right now.
How do you like them? Toasted, frozen, straight out of the package? I like mine toasty with OJ.
What are your plans for this weekend?
What did you have for breakfast?
...attend your next high school reunion in a convincing fat suit and in a wheelchair? The suit will make you appear to be 500lbs and it'll seem like you're too enormous to walk around on your own two feet. You cannot tell people that none of this is real, so your old classmates leave thinking the worst about you
...shoot up heroin 3x a day for 3 days? That's only 9 syringes full of the drug. Maybe you'll want more. Maybe you won't. I sure don't know what would happen
...hunt down and kill a huntsman spider using only your fists as weapons? The spider is let loose somewhere in your bedroom and given an hour to hide. You just have to find it and pummel it back to Jesus
...brush your teeth with vanilla icing (for cake) instead of toothpaste for a full week? Whatever your teethbrushing routine is, be it once or twice per day, you'll do it exactly the same with the icing, for exactly the same length of time you would normally. For just one week, and you can't brush your teeth with toothpaste AT ALL these 7 days. Only the icing substitute
...sneak into a little girl's house in the middle of the night and steal her kitten and all the heads off her dolls. She'll wake up and find all her toys brutally sabotaged and her favorite pet missing and will probably be inconsolable but you won't have to be around to hear her. It's just the guilt. Also, you're dropped off and picked up in front of a strange random house and blindfolded the entire trip so you can't find your way back to this house to make amends
...be willing to be locked in solitary confinement at a nearby prison for a week? No windows, no books, no nothing to pass the time. Even if books are normally allowed in normal solitary confinement it's not allowed in this poll
Righties, have you come across computers set up to be left-handed before? Were you rendered incapable of figuring it out, as my coworkers seem to be with the one I have that way at work?
will you guys help me from freaking out? kthxpeace
Dkdc, will you post a picture of what you think an intransitive verb would look like if it was a physical object?
Can you you find me some that are different?
EDIT: Ok yes...there are heaps of STYLES but it seems there are not many CUTS that are different. They all seem to have swept fringe and the same layers.
I am getting a haircut soon and I want something drasticially different but after a look they all seem to be same.
what's in your pockets?
Will you share your temp agency experiences with me?
Mine is on the opposite side of the street.
now onto some questions:
1- what's your phone provider/carrier/whatever it's called?
2- do you have unlimited texts? how much does it cost each month? (for your entire bill)
3- any good non-smart phones for verizon lately?
What bad habits do you have?
DK/DC: Why does the full moon make people all crazy?
I don't know...you are all super cool!
I've lost my link to a video with Oprah reading an excerpt out of a romance novel on her show once upon a time. Google and YouTube searches aren't popping up with anything. Do any of you fine TQC'ers have this video linked somewhere? Please share because it is hilarious.
how has the weather been where you live? it's been rainy and cold for like three days straight and i'm sick of it. i just want cold without rain plz ty
I do. I'm watching Buffy at the moment and Amy Adams just came on.
What is your favourite instance of this happening?
I like Luke Wilsons role in The X-Files.
If that was poorly worded or you don't watch tv, what were your career goals when you were a kid?
I wanted to be a paleontologist or a supermodel.
Do you and your parents get along?
I know I'm not supposed to remove it, but is there some way to make it invisible like it was before I rebooted the system? It's not currently holding anything important. Can I at least deflate it or something?
WHY ARE APPLE PRODUCTS SO MUCH CHEAPER IN THE US THAN THE UK?!
Edit: How can you buy them?
Or good video editor in general for windows?
***Edit: I am allowed to eat "soft" foods... Couldnt these foods just as easily get stuck in the area where the tooth has been pulled?

What would you serve to your guests?

What are some fun party/drinking games you like playing?

i have 2 and i don't think i'll be able to go through the pain again :x either it hurt so much because both times were on my wrist or i'm a baby.
I fixed a bag of celery slices and put some of hummus in the storage container for tomorrow's lunch/snack. I can't afford ice pack- so I was wondering if it would be OK unrefrigerated for several hours?
Here is what I have so far.
-someone wipes out*
-the phrase "Big Balls" is said
-Jill freaks out
-someone gets beeped out for cussing
-the hosts mention the $50k prize
*montages don't count bc I don't want alcohol poisoning
Also if someone finishes an obstacle in the qualifier that is particularly challenging/rarely completed (for tonight, the "Beaten Path") you have to finish your drink.
If you dgaf about drinking games, will you post youtube videos of awesome wipeouts? They don't even have to be from Wipeout!
Alternatively, what's the best Netbook out there?
Bonus: would you rather have a Netbook (mini computer) or an iPad?
Australians: um, how do I go about lodging my 2008-09 tax return statement? I've lodged mine for this tax period, but didn't get around to it for the previous financial year, for no good reason :[ Yes, I know, silly. I couldn't find this information on the ATO website.
Anyone: are people going to assume I'm a man while using this icon?
I just bought some but every kind I've tried have made me unbearably sick.
I tutor and have a paper mask that I would like to use in a lesson. How can I incorporate a mask into something spelling/reading/writing related? Or maybe you can help by suggesting words that "Mask" might go with?
What is the last thing you bought?
What the fuck is wrong with all the nectarines? Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a certain thing I should be doing that I don't know about? I LOVE NECTARINES AND I WANT TO HAVE ONE THAT DOESN'T SUCK.
ETA: How about if you were starving in Antarctica?
Do you know the song?
EDIT: the chorus, goes like "never ever ever, thought it would get better"
or something like that...
FOUND IT!! its called Strong again
If you live in a fairly homogeneous town, what is the ethnicity/ancestry claimed by the majority of people? You can make a snap judgment based on last names if you'd like, I won't judge.
what worked better for you as a goal- a weight or a clothing size?
