How fucked am I? Is it going to fall off!?!?
Have you ever done something really dumb/stupid at class or work?
i was talking on aim with one of my friends who i don't get to see very often and she said when she finished napping and working she'd text so i could come over and hang out. well right now i am with my other friends and she's on the phone with one of my other friends. he asked her to come over but she said she's going out with some other people soon. i don't know if she had these plans in place first, or if she just forgot to text me. do i have a right to feel jilted?
One of my friends from Israel had never even SEEN a taco before I made her eat one today.
What's one really "common" food you've never had?
I applied for 2 manager positions since I have a 4 year degree, and the minimum requirement without any experience as a manager is a 2 year associate degree + this 70 question test I had to pass (and did).
This was my last resort :( I can barely take being rejected from elsewhere, but if I get rejected from Wal-Mart...I don't even know. I'm about to get majorly fucked by my loans coming out of forbearance and they won't let me re-apply. I spent a nice chunk of time after I graduated from college inpatient/at long term residential with an eating disorder (ALL FOR NOTHING BTW), so I couldn't work. The only options I have are a) letting my credit get fucked until I get a job to pay them off or b) suicide. So much for having a B.S. in neuroscience. I don't know what else to do. Leaning very much toward option b right now.
omg they're itching so bad :(
ETA: How do I take care of itching inside my ear? Would Benadryl or Zyrtec work?
This is apparently tqchat.
dk/dc: What's the last thing that really messed with the fabric of reality when you saw/heard it?
If you can't remember anything, my answer is: Here's a video of Adam Green (ex-Mouldy Peaches band member, guy who co-wrote the soundtrack to the movie Juno) singing "Kokomo" with... Macaulay fucking Culkin. No shit. The fucking Home Alone kid. There is not enough "whut??" in the WORLD for this.
How much would someone have to give you to masturbate in some underwear and send it to them?
Do you like Italian Sodas? With or without cream? What's your favourite flavour?
The question: How much do you drink? When do you start, when do you make yourself stop?
Important questions to be answered before tomorrow night. I'm uncertain how to correctly time this with the correct quantities of alcohol to be both appropriately drunk at night and capable of driving a long distance the next day. I'm a wee one and it takes very little to knock me out, so the actually time to get drunk could potentially be less than 10 minutes. But my buddy will want to stay longer.
Help me insure avoided headaches and unhindered driving!
P.S. DOES ANYONE WANT TO GO SEE NIAGARA FALLS WITH ME ON TUES AFTERNOON? Either side idc I just wanna see it.
Is there a non religious quote very similar to this? If not, maybe buddhist?
EDIT: I am thinking getting this as a tattoo but I am in no way religious and even if I dropped the word "God" its would still have the undertone. Also...this has nothing do to with alcohol, I have had anxiety disorder for so long and I am consantly stressed and wound up tight. Once I beat my disorders/problems I am looking at getting something done to signify that. I LOVE this quote, but te idea of of getting something religious on my skin makes my, well skin crawl.
What book are you reading right now?
However, my boyfriend drunkenly slipped last night is that part of my birthday present which he has put the most thought into is that he is going to allow me to wear my comfortable pajamas that night. (meaning instead of the usual of my obliging his fashion request for the evening leading up to sexytimes.)
I'm trying to suppress the urge to castrate him for thinking that "permission to wear comfortable pajamas" during the evening/foreplay/sex is a once-yearly status gift instead of something that should be included in my free will during the other 364 days of the year and not even included on the realm of gift at all.
How should I handle this? Any words of wisdom to help talk me down? To help me appreciate his gesture in some way that I can not yet manage to conjure up? Something about humility, idk?
I want to believe the half of my brain that says that a birthday gift is not a reflection of how much someone loves me but the other part of me just wants to spiral.
So I've grown up in BFE, USA surrounded by people who don't take kindly to homosexuals, (notoriously) mexicans...or probably anyone or anything awesome, to be honest.
Now I know Canada allows gay marriage. And is responsible for Tegan and Sara. Really, my knowledge of Canada doesn't go much further than that and bagged milk. NEVERTHELESS, in my mind, it is a utopia of kindness and happiness and I WANT TO GO TO THERE.
So will you please tell me the catch? What is not so happy and shiny about Canada or what I should expect if I were to actually go to there?
Or you can just tell me more awesome things about it, that's cool too.
watch the episode
or go to bed,
The show has already hooked me after one episode
I cannot sleep
I have had fairly strong coffee toda so I am quite buzzed
But its 3.45 in the morning.
What should I do?
If you learned QWERTY and then switched, do you still retain your speed if you switch back?
I am craving peanut butter so much lately. I want milkshakes, brownies, cereal, candy, sandwiches, and just spoonfuls of peanut butter. My gramma says that when I crave something, my body is saying that something in it is something I need. So what in PB do I need so much?
What's your favourite way to eat peanut butter?
What was your first day of college like?
As discussed in the post below, why do you think there is such a stigma against going to community college?
Bonus points: what are you wearing today? Pictures are encouraged!

What would be a good way to simulate oil stains on clothes?
Does that sound okay with you?
Does the fact that I'm super sad about it make me a tree hugging hippy?
If I were to stop at a bakery to bring her some things, what should I bring her?
This has all been hospital approved.
It makes me feel old ....
Whats happened recently to make you feel old?
Will my stupid birthday get better or worse?
How was your last birthday?

Do you think she was harassed? In this kind of situation whose standards of behavior should be observed?
Did/do you skip class a lot?
A long long time ago, my AOL screenname was (like my lj handle) Noachoc. When I got rid of AOL (years and years ago), I had to make a new screenname for AIM. Now I find that my OLD AOL screenname is spamming my buddy list (I discovered this when my boyfriend left his email open and I noticed he was getting spam from email@example.com). Someone obviously hacked my old account, which pisses me off royally. I've spent an hour on the AIM website trying to find a way either to permanently delete my old account, or to notify AOL that someone's wrested control of it, but I can't figure out how. The "Notify AOL" button only seems to care about copyright infringement and none of the FAQ's answer my question. The live chat with AOL rep is only available to paid members.
Help? How do I either delete an old screenname permanently or report this abuse of my old handle to AOL? At this point, I'd like to get rid of my current one too, since I hardly ever use it.
Thanks, my dears.
Tell me something related to technology that has annoyed you recently?
I was wondering if any of you guys know of any photography websites that could help a sista out????
I am in need of packs of used film holders(at least 8) for a fair price.
HELP ME, PLEASE?
Make me feel better, TQC: what things will always bug you when you remember them?
What is your hope?
or, should i accept the fact that i am a poor college student and not buy anything?
do you recognize TQCers by their user name or user pic?
do you call it a userpic, icon, or something else?
eta i already know how to play the ukulele but i dont own one anymore. for make up, i just wanted to have new brushes but i've also not been wearing a lot of make up recently.
My life sucks right now. :(
What kind of transport do you use most often?
Do you own a car? If yes, what model of car is it?
A very good friend of mine was over this weekend, crashing in our apartment because he's leaving soon for Africa and visiting people. After he had left Saturday evening, I received ( Collapse )
TL;DR: Says thanks, then he apologizes for being a douche for part of our friendship but says he doesn't regret it because of it making him who he is today.
What would your reaction be?
What would you say or do?
Am I taking this too seriously considering we've been friends for 4+ years, even through his 'douchey-ness' and friend ditching?
Or is this the kind of straw that breaks it?
I'm finding his apologizing a little more aggravating than any of the ditching he's done over the years, honestly. I am not going to say that of course, for multiple reasons.
If you continuously have dreams like this, would you start to doubt the relationship?
One day you see an ad for a job that would be perfect for you - you interview and they offer you a job! So you put in your 2 weeks notice at your current job. Then job #2 calls you and said there has been a mistake, and they cannot actually offer you a position.
What would you do? Beg for job #1 back or find something else?
Are you going to get the new Professor Layton game???

However, I'm getting crap from my mother for this who is saying I should (apparently) be calling him multiple times a day. I think that'd annoy him more than anything else. When my father died, I wanted people to just not call, honestly. But I tend to get anti social and other people may not agree.
So, TQC, what do you think I should do? Call him again or not? He's not online at all (IM, Facebook, Twitter, etc) so I'm not going to be talking to him there.
There is no bruising, insect stings/bites, trauma or anything to the area, I didn't do anything to it yesterday, and I have no idea what is going on.
The author juxtaposes an ideology.
You're committing vacillation
"YES! That's true, but...."
"No... it's not true anymore"
When you DO take a pill, how do you take it (hold on top of tongue then wash down with liquid, dry swallow and chase with liquid, etc)?
I have never tasted a pill because when I take them, I put the pill BENEATH my tongue and then use a liquid to wash it down. I never taste them and they can stay under my tongue for a while before I swallow them. My mom gets freaked out when I put a pill in my mouth and then hold it there while I go get a cup, fill it up and then finally swallow the damn pill.
DK/DC: Do you like mushrooms?
I love them! I'm eating a bowl of mushrooms right now. Yum.
What was it?
Is there a trick to getting through, because DAMMIT, I can NEVER get through?!
Do you like turkey meatballs?
Because I love cooking with it, and I like the smell of it, and I like the taste it imparts on foods it's cooked with, but I HAAAAAAAAAAATE how the smell/taste lingers on me for DAYS afterwards. I can brush my teeth and tongue eighty million times, and use mouthwash every twenty minutes, but I can't get that GARLICDEATH smell off me for DAYS after I eat it. So I avoid it because of that. :(
What other stinky foods do you like?
dk/dc: Will you share a photo of your favorite outfit?
Do you enjoy reading the paper?
How is your vision?
I have one in my bedroom, and today it's occasionally been putting smoke out into my room. What is the cause of this?
Do you ever wonder if you have some natural amazing talent for something that you never realized?
DK/DC: Do you drink Vitamin Water? If so, which is your favorite flavor?
Also, have you ever read in a dream? I've heard it's not possible, but I definitely have in multiple dreams.
Is there any chance I'm still dreaming and don't realize it?
I've narrowed it down to two prompts: one titled "What was a Vernichtungslager (extermination camp) and how was it organized?" and another, "The fate of the Gays during the period of Nazi rule in Germany".
Which one would you write about?
What did y'all do today?
What is your favorite part of Fall?
It's set up more like a camp to me and I basically didn't get an actual position. I was sort of just the classroom floater for different age groups and errand bitch.
I asked the woman how many days I would be working and she said: "Well, honestly, I don't have a position for you but I'll probably need you for a few days"
WTF would this mean to you?
How was your Monday?
Are you addicted to reading certain books or genres?
If so which ones?
true or untrue? why?
ETA: Thanks everyone :)
DK/DC, what was the last thing that pissed you off?
Will you come pay compliments to other TQCers?
i have some classic Who goin now.....groovy
They're totally my biggest guilty pleasure ever. My favorites are a toss up between Model Behavior and Smart House.
2. Do you speed? If so, how much over the speed limit?
3. Do you ever tailgate?
4. How would you describe your driving style?
ETA: If everyone around you is speeding, do you try to keep up with traffic or do you stick to the speed limit?
I want to have a movie night with some friends at the end of the month, ( Collapse )
What should we go with? We all dig horror/gore, bad b-movies and shouting stuff at the screen a-la MST3K. And we will be drunk (hence I'm leaning less toward more cerebral stuff like movie based on Philip K Dick, and more towards goretastic 70s/80s banned films)
Do you ever wish you'd waited a little longer? Or maybe started earlier?
Every time I go to read my textbook I decide to hit refresh on my browser instead to see if there have been any new questions.
Coincidentally, can we make this an anything post so I can procrastinate the proper way?
how many hours per week do you spend studying?
srs and non srs answers plz
EDIT: you all are champions
i'd rather do food but i figure that's a crapshoot now that school has started
To single TQCers: When you go out to bars, are you on the look out for a hook up? Or do seek mates in calmer situations?
EDIT: I've decided you all need to pee in front of your SOs more.

What does your house smell like?
Have you noticed I decided to do nothing but ask questions in the entry?
What about True Life? What is your favorite episode?
NCIS. Yes, chardonnay I know you hate it. ;) Tied for 2nd: Burn Notice and Criminal Minds
(I've googled lyrics and everything before with little luck.)
Is there a song you associate with a particular fictional character, or vice versa? Unrelated song, obv (not movie soundtracks & such)
Do you think it's funny or clever to "fuck with" drive-through staff when ordering? If so, what are some examples of your best material? I promise I will not HUNT YOU DOWN LIKE A PREY ITEM.
What potentially awful embarrassing things have you very narrowly missed?
First of all, has anyone ever done this? Where did you do it? What was it like?
Second of all, I'm thinking of starting a blog about my experiences when the time comes. I want it to be like...an actual blog, not just one on Livejournal. So...how should I go about doing that? Would anyone even read a blog about the life of a D.C. intern (I'd try to be funny, I swear)? How can I find the people who potentially would?
What are your favorite blogs, guys, so that I can learn from the pros?
dk/dc: When are your parents' birthdays?
What's weird is that, as far as I can tell, it's not affecting my performance. When I wake up early I feel well rested and mentally alert. I don't find myself lagging physically. My grades would indicate my mental capacity isn't suffering. I don't even find myself getting tired earlier in the night - I generally go to bed around 11-12, although occasionally I'll go a bit earlier, sometime after ten.
Did the black-belt who fucked my elbow have secret powers? Have I joined the ranks of lame superpowers?
I have his website, but I have to do all the research and gathering of images, contact info, etc. myself. I'm not at all familiar with LinkedIn so I'd have to familiarize myself with that as well. I won't charge him for the time that I do that, but I want to charge him for the time it takes me to gather all the info and put everything together.
But how much? What's the going rate for something like this?
Don't know/don't care: I just used my crock pot for the first time. I made cheesy chicken soup. It's delicious. I need more recipes now. What's your favorite thing to make in a crock pot?
How do you deal with tooth pain?

college academic stories?
My boyfriend and I will be living together hopefully by the end of the year. We'll probably have a combined income of ~$1700 or so. We'll be renting a house, more than likely at about $700 a month. How much of the rest should I be saving, using for groceries, etc?
How much money a month do you use for you/fun stuff?
Thanks for any help, TQC!
