Women: Do you know guys that do this? Guys that refuse to?
We're taking a trip from NY to get married in VT, and right now we're feeling really gushy and loving 90s ballads, but also love both newer and older love songs.
Meatloaf- Anything For Love
Brian Adams - I Do It For You
Journey (or Mariah Carey) - Open Arms
Paulson - Window Frames
Paulson - Calling On You
The Postal Service - Brand New Colony
non-srs extremely welcome...two of "our" songs are Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up and Eddie Murphy- Party All The Time
i loooove shopping for makeup
do you prefer crosswords or sudokus? or something else?
Will you tell me about the last time you were so full of joy you felt like exploding?
For the majority of the 90s, I hung out on IRC a lot. All the damn time. In one of my regular channels there was this girl who, as I recall, called herself Krystyne. Anyway, Krystyne came off as someone who lied constantly and about everything. She had an LDR boyfriend who frequented the channel as well and would go off and start screaming at/flaming anyone who ever called her a liar, so it was hard to question her to see if she actually was lying. Um, anyway... one day, she came into the channel and said she was "kind of raped." Of course, the question was immediately posed: "What the hell is a 'kind of rape'?" Her story went as such: Some guy tried to rape her, and in the middle of it she said she decided it was okay to rape her. Then he went and did what he had planned to do anyway. She says this makes it "not rape" and giving him permission completely negated any sort of negative psychological effects it might have otherwise had.
She was completely full of shit, wasn't she? Do you think suddenly saying, "Oh, this is fine!" in the middle of it would actually change anything? I can't imagine it would, but I figured I'd ask here. Personally, I think she made the entire story up to try to get attention in the chat room. Saying that, though, got me flamed to hell and back by her boyfriend. They were banned from the channel a few days after that, just for the record. (The entire thing from her first showing up to being banned was only about a week and a half.)
Wow, that's long.
Videos, gifs, and funny sites welcome.
DIAGNOSE ME PREESE.
do you freak out about stupid shit? :(
Fall is coming. What's your LEAST favorite thing about it?
What do you like to put in your oatmeal?
For non oatmeal lovers, what is your favorite breakfast food?
When I brought up a serious conversation last night about me moving there, he did a 180 and started listing reasons as to why it'd be more rational for me to stay in the States to start my career (I currently don't have a job yet). It almost felt as though he was contradicting all of those jokes and didn't want me to move there with him.
Based on the info above, does he really not want me there despite all of his jokes, or, as my best friend thinks, is he just taken aback by my actually considering it when before I would just laugh it off and/or suddenly cognizant of how major this would be?
With that in mind, what would you say is the part of yourself you wash the least?
My son has a doctor's appointment about 45 minutes away from here by our nearest Whole Foods. I've never been there before, is it worth the extra money?
I've heard that it can be prohibitively expensive.
Do you like to cook or bake? What is your favorite thing to make? Care to share your favorite recipe?
The Democrats (or Obama specifically) say that we can't afford to continue not to tax them at the pre-Bush rates. Understanding why we pay taxes (for many reasons, including upkeep of the interstate highways and medicare...etc.).
What do you think really is best for the US?
If you don't live in the US, what do you think even though you probably don't really care what happens?
Personally, I think that keeping the tax cuts is a kind of a bad idea. The rich don't need extra money to buy more stuff; they're rich, they can probably afford, at very least, what they need. The middle class and lower class people, in my view, need the help much more than the rich (do they really even need help?).
You dump his sorry ass and find someone else, right?
While at a bar one night, this loud, weepy drunk starts blabbering his life story to you. You feign interest until it gets really weird. He says that he's a paramedic and part of this inner circle of organ thieves. One of them has a friend with the DMV who informs them who's an organ donor. The group preys on people between 18-21 whose organs are in the pink of health. They then sneak into their homes, murder them in the most benign way as to not endanger the organs and make it look like natural causes. When the body's brought to the hospital, they take the organs and divy them up to various people on the organ waiting list. One young person thus saves the lives of between 5-8 people. The group takes no monetary profit and does this for the greater good as they see it. He stands behind his group's agenda, but alcohol makes him feel guilty, he says. He's just blathering on, not caring who hears him. You see the hospital emblem on his shirt. What do you do?
Edit: he also says that they've probably killed like 30 people already, but the organs reaped from their bodies have gone on to save close to 180 people. They've saved all kinds of people, from mothers to children, their only reward is seeing the looks on the faces of the dozens of families who were given hope
Edit2: say you believe him. He manages to prove what he's saying and now you feel that you're involved now just by knowing
Is it reasonable for me to just tell my roommate I'm having someone over rather than having to ask her permission?
I just found out a close friend of mine from childhood who I lost touch with died last year and I've never really dealt with this before.
Have you ever had to make a blog for a class, or had a class blog the teacher posted on? How did it work and did you like it?
I think I've been spoiled by all my other destinations being direct flights so I've only had one delay experience. My boyfriend said that flight delays for maintenance are very common - is this true?
If it is, it was still a very bad first impression and I don't plan on taking Delta Airlines again if I can help it. What's the worst airline you've had to deal with?
Share your horrible flight stories with me? I'm sure mine probably pale in comparison to some of yours.
Tell me, TQC, what have you done with your school stuff? How much have you kept? What should I do with mine?
DK/DC: I just paid out for a conference all about fun interesting things like lego and cake and James Bond and 'sleepcatching'. What was the last thing you were excited to pay for/buy?
If you could only eat one kind of fruit for the rest of your life, what kind of fruit would it be?
For me, since this is what I am eating right now, it would be Honey Crisp apples.
Additionally, if you could be one of those Fruit of The Loom fruits (you know, the dudes in costumes), which one would you be? Care to add a new fruit to the mix?
I would add in a mango and be that.
1. how often do you clean your fridge?
2. What's your exact mailing address?
3. What's your Paypal password?
4. How many libraries have you eaten grape jelly in?
5. how many pennies can a frog swallow and still be able to swim?
6. how long is your man sausage?
7. have you ever been in a room with completely tiled floors and ceilings and walls, where each tile was accidentally and severely cracked and each crack occurred on a separate day?
8. Was it a European swallow or an African?
9. when/if prompted to enter the name of the protagonist of the video game you are playing, do you leave it on default or change it? to what?
10. What were the dimensions of the last poop you took?
11. How often do you suppose John McCain trims his nose hair?
12. what was before the big bang?
13. What would you do if I was spying on you through your window at this very moment?
2. I'm getting off work quite early tonight. What should I do with my time, without involving booze, hookers, or blow? Be creative; show your work.
3. I've got a contract/bundle/bullcrap with my cable company that locks me into a certain package for another year or so. Was this a stupid decision? (it was my husband's decision and I hate it) Further, if I were to move into an apartment complex that provided free cable or internets, how would you imagine that would affect my cable bill, if at all?
-Are formal enough to go under dress pants
-Have NO heel and have a sturdy (preferably rubber) sole
-Cover the entire foot (no ballet flats)
BONUS: -Are affordable and available in Canadian stores????
IDC if you don't like them. Fitted pants look awful on me.
How about ragey?
DK/DC/Don't eat sushi: You have suddenly come to own a black light (fluorescent kind, i.e. a long tube). What do you do with it? (i.e. where would you put it? Or would you give it away? Or what?)
I like whiskey and dislike sweet tasting drinks.
I am thinking of volunteering with my local organization and was just curious as to what to expect the experience to be like.
Do you have a niece or nephew that was born while you were still pretty young?
If so, what kind of relationship did/do you have? Did the smaller age gap affect it?
I'm just curious because there are a few cases like this in my family. I also know of at least one family where someone has an uncle younger than them.
edited to add that some of you need a psychiatrist or psychologist more than i do if you cant handle a little irony. Clearly a few of you need a sense of humor. Would there be as big of a deal if it were someone with a name like Slacker or Crook? Yes it was a juvenile little joke but dang. I apologize for offending anyone.
So, what are your opinions on this, TQC? Man or woman? I know I'll probably get both answers, but I'm curious if it'll be mostly one sided or a 50/50 split or what. (In otherwords, the stat geek in me is coming out.)
And since I'm leaving all the men out with this question, here's a random question for anyone: Have you ever had curry? How do you like it? I've never had it but am thinking about trying it soon... but I always sort of imagined it'd be really similar to chilli, just without beans. Am I completely wrong here?
Phone books. They can die a firey death. I think there's plenty of ways to get a number without the use of a book and I don't need coupons from the book that bad.

Does your 'calling' in life actually differ from what you love to do, or whatever your greatest passion is?
What would YOU do?
1. Own my own home, though it needs lots of work (insulation, siding, garage, fence all need work). Payments would be around $350-400/mo, but I've been living there for 19 months, so I know all the problems.
2. Own my own home, but a different property. I've only seen it on google maps, but it's in a better neighborhood, costs a little bit more, and is a little further from work (like 4 miles).
3. Go ahead and take the $300/mo + I pay all utilities apartment I've already found and be happy I don't have to mow the lawn.
I really want to like it but I just don't, can I make myself like it? How would I go about that?
how much does a 1-litre carton cost where you live? it cost me $2.60 wtf. i'm thinking about buying/freezing bags like an old person because then i can get a gallon for $4.
eta: WOW SO CANADIAN MILK IS HIGHWAY ROBBERY. how much is cheese and meat in the states? it's $4-$5 here for a pound of ground beef and $6+ for those bags of grated cheese, or $9 for a block. i know our produce is the same or cheaper tho.
How pissed would you be if your options for dessert were cake (probably strawberry/cannoli filling) or banana cupcakes?
also: cream cheese frosting or just plain ol' vanilla?
Do you take naps? How long are they usually?
Should I do Wilma Flintstone or Joan Holloway?
My SO might be Fred, so I thought Wilma would be cute, but finding a dress that's not expensive that I can alter is proving to be difficult. The costumes I'm finding suck.
Joan would be easiest, since I just bought a dress that looks like something she'd wear, but I'm not sure if many people would get it.
Failing that, I'm thinking Lady Gaga with the Diet Coke cans in her hair.
I usually either have my legs crossed or one leg tucked under me.
When I go to the grocery store, what specific cut am I looking for? I'm lost.
Also, would it be worth it to get this at the butcher?
I'd be a 20 minute ride each way, but if it's really much better I'll do it.
What's the best Bond movie overall?
Who's the coolest fictional evil mastermind?
My dog seems to love wearing clothes, but I never take him out in public that way. I bought a santa hat for my cat one year and he would not move after I put it on, so I never did it again.
EDIT: Or anything else, i guess
side note: is it easier to weed a shitty friend out of your life slowly or have "the talk" and explain yourself?
What has the internet ruined for you?
I like(d): Blood+, Wolfs Rain, Bleach, Naruto, Canditate for Goddess, X, ...
I'm packing. I leave for Europe tomorrow from Newark airport. I'm only taking a carry on bag, so I have to deal with that 3 ounces of liquid packaging rule, and they all have to fit in a quart size ziplock bag. I'm sorting through all the things I think might be liquids in order to maximize space in that tiny little quart sized bag by not having anything that doesn't need to be in there, well, in there.
Toothpaste, concealer, cream blush, deodorant, and lip gloss all don't say fl. oz. (fluid ounces) on the packagins. Does this mean that the airport doesn't consider them liquid? Or does it not matter, and they're still liquid?
My mascara, for reference, says fl. oz. on the package and so I am considering it a liquid no matter what.
I just have shampoo, conditioner, face wash, face lotion, allergy medicine, and nail polish that MUST go in the clear bag and there's not much space left...
Can I not put these items in the clear plastic bag? Are they going to confiscate them anyway? Any other tips on how to get these items on the plane with me?
For the others that don't: It's a job that sells knives and such. I go to people's houses that have called and sparked an interest in the product and demonstrate it. I either make 15.25 a demonstration or if the customer decides to buy, I get a percentage off of how much they buy. Seeing as I was offered a part time job, I would do about 20 demonstrations a week. So I get a minimum of 305 dollars a week if nobody buys or I get the percentage (which on average is between 750 to a thousand dollars).
Would you take this job?
ETA: I'm not going to take it :) No worries.
I have heaps of homework. I'm getting sick from looking at it
One of the games I like to play relies on the F-keys for certain commands, but my laptop has pre-assigned things to my F-keys such as volume control and dvd player commands. Is there anything I can do to get rid of those? D:
(running on windows 7, if it matters)
Favorite breakfast food?
Is there anything you would like to say?
( Collapse )
ETA: If your 2's are non-loopy, do you think the loopy 2's are ugly?
Today I had to help a little girl go to the bathroom.
My total fear is vomit. I feel like with the way things are going, vomit is going to be next on the list.
WTF DO I DO? Can I run away?
When was the last time you were totally lost with your job?
Have you ever had a job where you were doing everything BUT the job that you applied for?
What is your favorite poem?
( Collapse )
Your person is letting you ride on its shoulder while it makes pee and messes with its fur. It starts walking, closes the wall, then puts you down. You run off.
Less than two minutes later you are in the box spring.
How did you get in the box spring?
1. Prior to this moment, you had no idea the box spring was even a cave.
2. The box spring is flat on the floor, not a frame
3. The only hole in the box spring is the hole your person made in the bottom part to get you out.
would you share your thoughts, fave moments/episodes/characters, etc.?
For me, it was this: I suggest you learn how to spell the word correctly before you try to make it.
What's the worst thing you can think of to be doing when your water breaks? My 12th grade English teacher's water broke while she was teaching class - twice.
Inspired by my watching Glee right now, and thinking how awful it would have been if Quinn's water had broken like two minutes earlier.
What about Greek?
What's your favourite ethnic food? I like Mexican a lot, but Oriental food is probably my favourite. I can't choose between Japanese, Chinese, and Vietnamese though, so I have to lump them under 'Oriental'.
Is Oriental still an okay term to refer to food? I was going to call it Asian, but that includes Russian, Indian, and Thai, and I haven't had the first two, and I'm not a fan of Thai. But Thai is probably considered 'Oriental', so I'm screwed either way, eh?
How much do you usually give?
Should I satisfy this need on one of my free days or save my money for something else?
alternatively, here is a very gross soup.
is it lame that I'm bummed I can't go see jason mraz for free tomorrow at my school? haha
when you eat fast food, what kind do you prefer?
Being in love with someone who doesn't love you back?
Having someone in love with you that you don't love back?
How about jam?
Are there any sayings your parents used to say when giving you certain foods? (wibble wobble wibble wobble jelly on the plate)
Apparently it was dental related. What do these people have in common???
( Collapse )
$10 US. Free shipping. eBay. 27573 feedback; 99.6%. I've only ever bought one other thing from eBay.
Is there anything big/small you're debating buying?
Edit: I should have said "from this seller, as I'm still a bit iffy about eBay 'cause I'm silly." I personally like the style, and know a lot of people probs think I look like an idiot for wanting to look like Bob Dylan. P:
(Inspired by this episode of Stargate.)
I still have my lesson plans from a couple of years ago, but they are for older children (although most is still useable just at a slower pace). I emailed the center's director and asked what they are currently learning so that I can possibly try to sync up the lesson to that.
Does anyone have any advice/tips?
I'm trying to figure out what the general knowledge of these things is so I know how much explanation I need to give for my website.
If you don't know what a golem is without looking it up, will you tell me about your favourite mythical/legendary/fairytale creature, character, species, or race?
what are some of your favorites?
where's a good place to shop for candles?
Also, I've had one speeding ticket and a ticket for following too closely.
If you are just too good and sweet for words, than what're you reading now?
Kelly, Stacy, Kim and Tracy. In your opinion are these girls' names, boys' names or both?
2. I have a theory that states that all you need to make a good Old West cowboy name are the two first names, "Frank James" plus an Irish Surname. Or Frank James + Irish surname = Perfect Cowboy Name.
Every Irish surname I have tried works for this theory. But maybe I am missing one that doesn't. So, do you think this theory is true or is there an Irish surname that would never make a good cowboy name?
And what would be your cowboy/girl name, if you suddenly found yourself in the Old West?
If you don't run, when's the last time you stood up for someone else when they didn't ask you to?
I try not to hit on the females here, but it's tempting. I think I'm just way too amused by my own actions sometimes.
So, in conclusion: I'm weird as hell, aren't I?
