When's the last time you were sick?
What should I name it?
My ideas so far are:
La Ciudad Viva
And I don't know. Help!
DK/DC: Favorite scifi/fantasy book/story?
is there any solution other than finding a boyfriend, or telling him i'm a lesbian so that this fellow would leave me alone?
Mine is 8.
What's the last thing you ate?
Posted via m.livejournal.com.
If you're single, what's the last thing you bought for anyone else?
If you were to run away and start a new life somewhere else, where would you go?
What makeup do you wear on a daily basis?
I look like a gross 12-yr-old boy without mascara, and my favorite is Maybelline Full n' Soft in brownish black. I also need to have lip balm on my lips at all times - it's always either Blistex Daily Conditioning Treatment or Palmer's cocoa butter stick (it looks like a glue stick hahaha).
I wear mascara, tinted moisturizer (Cover Girl Aqua Smooth in Fair-Light), foundation as concealer (Revlon Colorstay in Ivory), blush (MAC Blushbaby) and loose powder (Sonia Kashuk colorless loose powder) every day.
should I get a fanfiction.net account or am I asking for trouble here?
The other animals mentioned are easy to figure out (fox/British, bull/Spanish, wolf/American, animals with the faces of animals/Canada) but I can't for the life of me figure out this line, and my Google-fu is turning up nothing...
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
So it would seem, after doing some more research, that the animals in "that" country is actually referring to Europe, so now I have to figure out both cat and wolf, as fox is still Britain and bull is still Spain. At least this narrows it down, so I should be good to go now. Thanks for those that have tried to help so far, I appreciate it.
I feel like a moron, but I guess that means I'm learning. The cat symbolizes Europe's general superstition towards cats, and the wolf is how they were actively hunted until the last quarter century when they were given protection, though their numbers are still severely declined.
You're at a bar when some guy in his 40s whistles loudly and says he's buying everybody a drink. "I'm celebrating the fact that I was acquitted for killing my wife and kid. Aw, man, I thought it was going to be a long stay in prison, but my lawyer, God bless his soul, managed to get all the evidence thrown out and I walked! Eff the justice system, man, I can do whatever I want!" He takes a table in the corner by you with a plate of buffalo wings. You pass by his table coming back from the restroom and you notice him choking on a chicken bone. He's going to die unless someone helps him. What do you do?
and it's to the extend that he has been telling EVERYONE about in the office about it.
it's making you look like you're cute that's why you got the job. but in reality, you don't deserve this job at all.
what would you do? obviously confronting him is the last choice, he holds grudges. :(
i forgot to mention also, there's a 2 year contract on this job which i signed. and i'm only 6 months into it. leaving the job would mean i have to pay for the remaining time in my contract. i love the job, love what i'm doing and learning but this is making it very hard for me.
I bought a cheap pair of sunglasses yesterday and when I took the plastic sticker off the frames it left a huge amount of sticker residue. I tried using some Goo-Gone on it but that did nothing. I tried just using my hands/nails to peel/scrape it off but the still nothing. I actually broke a nail on it and the residue didn't even budge. After that I tried Windex and various oils around my house, still nothing. Is there another way to get it off, or am I stuck with a giant block of ugly on my sunglasses?
I thought I had to do a guided tour around the garden I work at today, but it's been cancelled!
Any trouble sleeping?
If not, what was the last thing to scare you?
(I'm in class now trying to stay awake b/c those stories kept me up for awhile. I have a great imagination, I kept picturing the murderer standing outside, but it was really his reflection and all that shit. Gives me chills just thinking about it.)

As you grow older do you ever look in the mirror and see yourself and think you've seen that face somewhere before when you were much younger?
example: wanna bone?
Am I going to prison?
I am single and attractive, and I've been meeting more people lately and all the guys are like after me like a male dog after a bitch in heat. I'm not sure how to behave where I can still talk to and be friends with people, without giving them even a glimmer of hope. I am not good at this and am SUPER flirtatious, so I often times accidentally seem interested. What are things I should definitely not do or say?
Do long distance relationships ever work?
A couple of weeks ago, I asked about student loans. Now I come to you to ask: where are the best places online to get used college text books at cheap/reasonable prices? My roommate and I need a combined total 21 books, yikes!
DK/DC: What's the weather like where you are? It's typical NW OR weather here: cool/cold, rainy, sporadically sunny, totally awesome.
Edit: Thanks, guys! I appreciate all your help mucho.
I'm debating just winging it for the first time this year, and I have a feeling that I'll probably do a bit of the second, although hopefully not too much, and I'm interested to know if you think this is something that you would look down on.

If the other person (people) you live with do the opposite do you move to their way of thinking or carry on and hope they move to yours?
What all have you done today so far? What are you going to do next? I had school from 9:30 to 12:15, then I took a nap. I'm about to head to a play rehearsal.
The older I get the wavier my hair is. Has your hair done any natural changing over the years? Other than gray hair.
Mine was a Silent Hill 4 wallpaper.
I'm in Chicago right now. On this trip, I really wanted to meet my half-sister for the first time. I told her that I arrived and tried to make plans, but she just tells me that she'll let me know if she has time or whatever, as if meeting me isn't that important. This is kind of bothering me, because when we first started talking to each other she seemed kind of crazy about getting to know her brother. Now, I'm starting to feel that i'm almost an afterthought in her life. So much that if she ends up not meeting me in favor of some other plans i'm thinking about giving up the relationship I have with her altogether. Here's why I don't think I could though: I really loathed being an only child and was quite overjoyed when I found out I have a half-sister. If I cut her off though, i'll be all alone again. I really don't think I could handle that kind of feeling again, i'm not even close with any of my cousins.
If you were in my shoes, how would you handle this?
Assuming I have designed it myself, it has meaning to me and will be somewhere discreet.
How old were you when you got your first tattoo? Do you regret it?

"You are currently using 135MB (1%) of your 7501MB."
The other day, I had something like 9% used up. Is this a Gmail glitch? I didn't delete anything. I have over 10,000 emails, mostly LJ comments.
When I was really young I used to believe that there were monsters under my bed at night, and they wouldn't be able to get me if I hid completely under the covers. I even went so far as to create a little air pocket under the covers so I could breathe without exposing my head. Did any of you ever do something similar when you were a kid?
they say that every man looks for a woman who is like his mother and same goes for girls and fathers. do you think that's true on some subconscious level? is this there something you find attractive in people that your parent possess? also do think this has to do with personality or just looks?

- Some Kraft Tex Mex cheese (cheddar, moz, monty jack)
- Half a stick of butter (~1 c.)

What I really want to do is try my hand at making Spanish tortillas (I don't have eggs right now, but I can borrow some from a friend), and then broil the kabobs in the oven and make peas with butter/salt/pepper as a side. ETA II And I only have to make enough food for 3-4 people including me. Two of the others just bailed on me ;-;
Should I go with this? Do you have any other suggestions given the above ingredients?

Failing that, what is your favorite poem?
my ex and I are working things out kind of (taking it day by day) and it is awesome but man oh man it is draining and so hard sometimes... I am so glad we are doing this but the instability of it kills sometimes. Like, right now she is upset and I know she isn't upset with me but with herself but I feel responsible and I am just upset a bit now, too... ugh.
Plus my financials are taking a bit of a shit and I am so over college. I want a job again, but I know if I get another job I will die from the lack of sleep and overload of stress.
Plus, my tummy aches...

How concerned are you about disaster preparedness? My next-door neighbors have an entire room stocked with canned food, sleeping bags, flares, those little paper respiration masks, etc. They have plans for everything. It's kind of crazy.

One of my friends pops up in my dreams a lot but I had a crush on him for ages so that's not unexpected. But in the past couple of months Castiel from Supernatural has popped up in my dreams multiple times a week and idk why - he isn't even my favourite character.

My 5 mo old kitten, Lacey, was licking up some spaghetti sauce and I realized too late that there was a smallish cooked bay leaf in the sauce and she ate that too. It was small and cooked. Lacey is a little over 4 lbs and in good health. Is this a serious problem? What should I do?
So, my mom is joking with me and calling me an alcoholic. I know she's only looking out for me, and I appreciate it, but I know my limit and don't drink any more than I can handle...which is not that much. I can drink a few and then I have to stop.
What would you consider being an alcoholic? Like how many drinks/how often would the person have to drink to fit that description? Do you or anyone you know have a drinking problem? Also, what is your favorite drink?

The second is; "Your Adobe Photoshop user name, organization, or serial number is missing or invalid. The application cannot continue and must now exit."
Am I just going to have to suck it up and buy it or is there a way to fix this?
My cat goes inside and outside. I like him to stay inside at night, partly because then I can give him attention/play with him, and partly because I just like knowing where he is at night. About a week ago, we went on vacation and I'm pretty sure the caretaker let him be outside 24/7. He's recently developed the habit of staying on my kitchen table all night and meowing in this "I'm so pathetic please come see me" way. He has food, water, and I always give him pets. Does my cat just want to be outside? Should I give in and let him go outside at night? If not, how can I make him be quiet?
Where are you?
Do you have some kind of ~emergency plan~ or kit?
I keep seeing these NYC commercials about making a plan, having a kit, and I can't help but wonder if they're tryin' to tell me something.
