I usually go to the West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn. They have this parade in Miami and Boston, too, I think.
I watch it from the fire escape of my Aunt's apartment or I join in. But not without friends or my bf to Booty-Guard me. You can't stand still without some drunken guy taking the opportunity to grind on your ass. I felt my first erection at the Carnival years ago. Yeah...
Or I go to a barbecue.
Do you eat your pizza with ranch dressing?
Do you dip it, or pour it on top?
Has anyone else made this stupid of a mistake before? I'm freaking out right now. Ugggggh.
I'm the only one in the house with a job (standing on my feet no less) and I'm the one made to do chores around the house. I realise I pay no rent and still live with my parents, but jeeze.
How do you deal with terrible knee, hip, back, and feet pain? I've tried heating pads and slews of over the counter pain meds, but standing on my feet all day just makes me hurt for two or three days. I can't even sleep in my bed; I have to sleep in a recliner on days that I work.

Have you seen anyone wearing them IRL? Did they look ridiculous?
I saw two people in my town wearing them this weekend. My disappointment in humanity grows day by day. :(
What dishes should I bring?
I'm already planning to do a variation of this baked brie, but I want to do something else, too.
I, for one, think the word "totes" for totally sounds strange and like you're in 4th grade.
Cantaloupe or watermelon?
I want my twin boy and girl to be something that goes together (like batman and robin, or raggedy ann and andy, etc).

I'm going to put an ad up in my building for a stranger to come feed, water, and play with my cats. Also clean the litter box. I'll be away 7-10 days.
Tuesday I bought tickets for me a 3 friends to see a baseball game (Mustache Mayhem night at Keyspan park!) I put everything on my card... like the total is $72. Game is at 7 pm.
But then, HOLY SHIT, I forgot that Wednesday morning my little sister goes to Madrid for a year so naturally my family wants to have dinner together. No where near the ballpark
Guys what do I do?
Can I cancel the tickets?!
Is there any way of weasling out of seeing my sister?

2. If you were a hungry yet patient desert predator with seemingly unlimited credit and with a stubborn grudge against a certain elusive ground-based avian, what would you do to get revenge and get your eating on?

What exercise routine do you follow? How do you motivate yourself to go to the gym regularly?
The color is also a main component in center of an (Indian Peafowl) peacock plume and some Irises, Wisteria, Hydrangeas and Orchids carry the shade.
I'm not an art major so I know very little about color, hue or pigment; I've been trying for years to place the exact color name but it's always fallen into a "know it when I see it" space. I know it's not Indigo, Azurite, Egyptian blue or Prussian blue because it has more of a purple base. Does anyone know the technical name for the color/pigment I'm speaking of?
If that's not applicable, will you comment with your newest icon?
With that, will you also post pictures of your house or rooms in your house?
My nose is always oily and gross and just,
How do I make it not oily and gross?
Let's suppose that in the 2012 Presidental Election that the GOP selected Romney to represent the Republican party, thus marginalizing Sarah Palin and her legion of Teabaggers. Sarah then decides to run as a third party: the Tea Party, and picks Larry the Cable Guy, er, I mean Joe the Plumber as her running mate. The nation scoffs, but due to national apathy, neither primary party generates a great deal of votes from their base, as the economy and Afghanistan have rendered the nation depressed about the future. Palin's supporters, fanatical and unyielding as a pitbull, vote en masse and every last person who doesn't understand how taxes work votes for Palin and she beats out the Obama and Romney and becomes President. You imagining that? Ok. The question here is: which country would you move to?
Palin's first act as president is to stop all gay marriage, gays in the military, and gays on Project Runway (only judges who support bonnets and full length skirts). The GOP-majority Congress (major turnover of seats in 2010) back her up all the way and the Democrat senators are too disorganized to know what to be angry at first and fail to stop Sarah's anti-gay ambitions. Next, in order to stop the 'homosexual agenda' from converting our kids to sin, she makes it illegal for gays to teach, hold public office or purchase property. Since she can't tell who's gay, the only acid test out there is marriage. Only married people are fer sure straight and only they can teach, hold office or purchase property. All unmarried people lose their rights. What do you do?
Next on the chopping block are welfare, unemployment and any other 'handout program'. All benefits are cut so the illegals can't make any money off Uncle Sam. If you need money, the only outlet is: JOIN THE ARMY. All benefits are not only reinstated, but you get subsidized housing, courtesy of the U.S. Military. All those who can't pay go to Debtor's prison and now that the army has more bodies than ever, the U.S. is going to war against Iran. How does this affect you?
In order to fund these wars, Palin authorizes...no, demands drilling in every national park and wetland out there. Nothing is protected or off-limits. This drilling gambit pays off and dozens of key oil sites are discovered and America is rolling in black gold. Palin leans on our allies heavily and makes them buy their oil from us. To celebrate this abundance of oil, Ford and the other American auto makers discontinue all their lines except SUVs, which are suddenly in high demand. SUVs are now everywhere and given Palin's recent repeal of all environmental laws, the skies grow dark with smog. What color will your SUV be?
What's your favorite visually striking music video? It can be any genre. We've got things from Britney Spears to Tom Waits...so, really. Any genre.

I feel like I can't get into How I Met Your Mother mostly because I don't like the look of any of the places they frequent. On the other hand, I really like the look of The Big Bang Theory.
How do you differentiate between "music" and "noise"?

So, TQC, will you take bets to see how long it will be until I fall asleep this time?
Can you recommend me any?
Now that we're not talking and I've thought it over I really don't want to do it. It's 12 hours in a soggy field in a dress with bugs. She's under the impression that I'll go but I'm pretty sure she only wanted to "hang out" because she needs a ride there/back. We are friends and we do hang out on occasion when we're able to but she is clearly using me in this situation.
What should I do?! I wouldn't mind seeing her and chatting for a while and I like driving so I'd be okay with dropping her off and even picking her up. Is this acceptable? Even though I'm being used I didn't say 'no' so I kind of feel bad about not wanting to be an extra.
What advice could you give for someone who is interested in trying out a sort of "X Weeks Veg*n Challenge" thing, to see if they can save money on groceries/eat healthier? Especially if said person adores eating meat.
I'm interested in doing this mainly just to see how long I can go for without eating meat/some meat by product; I will most likely continue to drink milk (because soy/rice/etc. milk makes me vom), eggs (my mom hooks me up with organic eggs, ch'yeaaaah!) and the occasional seafood product. And if it can save me some $$ or make me less of a fatass, all the more better.
What are your favourite veg*n or meatless recipes?
How awesome are crock pots, srsly?
I am super stoked that BBC's Merlin, Supernatural, the Venture Brothers, and the Big Bang Theory are premiering in September. I'm also looking forward to Shit My Dad Says and CSI.
