Where did the pickles go?
I don't get it. All the other websites I've tried have loaded quickly, but LJ is just damned sluggish no matter what.
EDIT: Reason behind LJ's clunkiness is in the comments.
Mine is always signing me out, or it's always waiting to work because of an ~error~
Do you feel self-conscious about your purchases? What types of purchases? Because I always feel self-conscious when I buy booze or fiber stuff, lol.
Also, what kind of things do you eat instead of meat?
I'm trying to become a vegetarian, and it's been like... a week and a half. So far so good, but I'm kind of sick of tofurky!

Anybody know any good documentaries? Websites?
I'm specifically interested in; historical ownership of the land, religion in Israel, and tension in modern times between Israelis and Palestinians.
I'm looking for which store(s?) - I am assuming a department store, but could be wrong of course - sell VINI brand clothing. They make broomstick skirts that are fabulously gorgeous.. I found one at a thrift shop and want a million more. Googling has been useless for me, and eBay only has one listing which is not my size, so I'm hoping somebody here is familiar with the brand. Anybody know?
What is it, and how can I smash it into tiny bits? Something fairly cheap preferably.
I live in Florida and it is summer atm, if that makes any difference.
Anyone ever tried growing something with absolutely NO EXPERIENCE whatsoever?
And, if so, any tips?
i'm in dire need of a new bedding set but there is nothing i really like. i've looked at bed bath & beyond, target, kohls and urban outfitters amongst others.
i think my main problem is that i'm kind of stuck in between getting "adult" bedding and stuff that i could have gotten away with having in college. i've seriously considered just getting the roxy set at bed bath and beyond, which is fine when i was in high school, but that was a good 8 years ago.
so TQC, what does your bedding look like?
where did you get it?
OH! SECOND QUESTION! Will you let other TQCers know whether or not you recognize them, even though they are using unfamiliar icons?
Should I just go there with my stuff and hope they take it? Or should I do something else?
I've always been unsure about those donation bins so I'd really like to be able to give them directly to the SPCA.
What fast food will you willingly eat?
Do you read a lot?
what is your secret to happiness? lol
-I got "dismissed" from my job last night after only working 6 days because they hired too many people.
-I have no bank card cause some ass tried to use it to sign up for netflix when we can't even get it in this country and even then i only have around $25 to my name.
-I have around 50km worth of petrol left in my car.
say your SO applied for a job in a far, far away place that you'd be fine with moving to.
say your SO didn't mention this to you until after they submitted the application, how would you feel?
how would you feel when you found out your SO was one of the finalists for the job?
What's the best news you've received lately?
Does it include scenarios where there is alcohol involvement/inebriation?
I figured I should bring my resume, but do you think that's it? Should I bring a list of references? I probably don't need a cover letter, do I?
And a magenta, short sleeved, button down shirt with a black skirt and black flats sounds good for an outfit, right? I'm also going to wear my hair up, maybe some earrings and my lucky nautilus shell necklace (the pendant is no bigger than a quarter).
My work colleague, who is a very good friend has just asked to borrow a lot of money.
We are responsible for claiming our own work expenses, then, once we get refunded this money, we in turn pay for our own corporate credit card. Company expectations are that we do an expense claim at least once per month. My friend has not done one since June, and now, her credit card bill is huge. She keeps on procrastinating on doing her expenses and has been approached by the credit card company and work, both of them asking 'Please pay the bill in full asap'. It's an amex, so there is no interest charged, we have to pay the bill in full each month.
She is panicking and has asked me for $3500, she promises to repay me as soon as she gets reimbursed - which would be on 7th October, providing she does the expenses. She has just resigned, and has been so lazy about everything work related. I'm 99% sure she'll do her expenses like she has promised me. But...whaat if she doesn't? I mean, she's leaving, after all. The thing is, she is a really good friend and I feel like I really should help her out.
Should I lend her the money?
How does this spelling make you feel? Do you think it'll catch on?
I want to seduce the cute Mexican/Dutch bar lass where I am staying.
What can I do to succeed???
Srs/non-srs and down right whacko answers plz....
Choice 1 - You can take a trip to Austria/ Germany for the holidays. (If you haven't heard - you'll be hard pressed to find a more beautiful place than those over Christmas. They shut down the town and have festivus and Christmas lights and hot cider and the whole movie-esque shabang. It's fantastical.)
Choice 2 - You can spend several days with a group of good friends and neighbors making lots and lots of food and wrapping gifts and take it by hand to the homeless in your city (or a nearby city).
Which do you chose and why?
DK/DC: What's your favorite unhealthy food?
Favourite recipe that includes it?
I am in the middle of trying to sell off my old car and almost a month ago (I requested it on the Friday before Labor Day), I called Mazda in order to get another copy of my lien release paperwork for the vehicle so I can hand it over to the people who want to buy it.
Well, here we are going on four weeks later and I still don't have it. Last Thursday, I called Mazda to find out the status, they didn't have a date in the system to tell me when it went out in the mail, only that it had.
So, should I call Mazda again and order another copy of the paperwork and tell them that it should be comped since it's lost in the mail somewhere, should I just hand over another $17.50 to them since I still haven't gotten it, or should I continue to wait and hope it shows up this weekend? (I will be seeing the people this weekend - the wife is the convention chair at which I will be doing massage work at.)
To this end we will be constructing a Facebook group and encouraging such legions to join that he will have no choice. Either that or get so annoyed that he forgets to log himself out of his Facebook account one day.
In aid of this, I need the most epic herp-derp pictures you can give me! Will you give me epic herp-derp pictures?
How do you keep yourself from becoming irrationally angry from stupid things like that? I am sitting near this woman who is whistling her S's and her T's, and all I want to do is knock her teeth out of her mouth.
How badly will they fuck it up?
Should I go with writing about those kinda random ideas I have? Or make something up completely? I kinda need a scholarship, I'm just sort of lost on what I want to do...I want to try everything :( but they don't want to hear that. They want ~specifics.~
If you had to breed two celebrities, who would you breed to make the cutest/smartest/coolest/whateverest baby?
How did it work out?
Vague description pls.
I've been on disability for my bipolar since the last week in July and I'm becoming a bit of an agoraphobe but I think it will be good for me to meet new people, but as it gets closer to the time to get ready and go, my anxiety level is increasing with each look at the clock. Am I being insane? Should I just take an Ativan and force myself to go?
ETA: I'll go get in the shower and go. Thanks for all of the encouragement.
Update in tqc_updates!
You got drunk and had a one-night stand. You wake up the next morning, alone, hung over with sore genitalia and start inspecting your room. Which of the following discoveries would be the MOST alarming thing to find?
I'd be adding it to this recipe.
Who do you want to tell and what do yo want to say?
Is there anything you want to tell another tqcer?
What is it?
1) Is my price range too low?
2) Is there a particular model range that you recommend?
3) Is there anything I should look for in a range?
4) I've checked out Amazon and epinions.com for customer reviews. Neither gave me any good recommendations. Is there another review site that you could recommend?
It's a German restaurant, no beer is not an option.
Approximately how much of your time every day do you spend online? What about watching TV?
I am applying for a job, and I am unsure what to put on my resume.
I don't want to look bad by saying I've been working under the table, but won't they see that I did not file taxes when looking at my employment history?
What exactly do they find when looking up employment history anyway? There not like, an employment database. So what dort of information can they dig up if I put Self Employed on my resume?
( Collapse )
Anyone ever worked at DSW?
Will you show me some pretty dresses?
( Collapse )
So, how can I make him stop annoying her like that?
pubes, frickin 4 years before armpit
ETA: huh pubes first is definitely ahead. I had no idea it was so common.
So last night I posted about texting a cute waiter I met at a restaurant.
I texted him last night, haven't heard a response yet.
Now my parents and I are going there to have dinner. And I know he's going to be there because he told me his schedule.
Is this going to be awkward? Should I mention anything about the text? Will it look like I got impatient and decided to go see him at the restaurant? Because that's not the case at all! It's really hot out and my parents want to go there instead of make dinner and I can either go with them and have the best macaroni and cheese in the world or sit at home and eat leftovers.
EDIT: I ended up going. Read all about it at tqc_updates!
I need a RED red lip stain that won't come off when I kiss the groom, but that also doesn't feel dry and awful.

why is my ljtimes in russian?
Do you heed this warning?
Have you ever purchased a product, gotten it home and realized that the seal was broken or missing?
What was it?
Does it make a difference if it's a true ingestible item? (Like say, mouthwash vs. aspirin.)
*edit: also, when I take tests I have problems breathing and panic a little bit, what can I do to prevent that whenever I take a test/quiz?
DK/DC/I suck at math: Whats the hardest test you've ever taken?
What celebrity would be the most absolutely horrific partner you can imagine starring in it with?

I just finished up the last of my chocolate chip cookies and banana bread. What should I bake next?
What's your favorite kind of cupcake? Do you like cupcakes with stuff in the middle? (Like Hostess cupcakes)
What do I do, TQC? This is my first crush in years. My last crush was 5 years ago and it was a horrible experience.
Should I ...
I wanna use one where the kid is nagging the parent to talk about it...but how do you type that into google.
I decided to turn to the most comprehensive wealth of knowledge there is. You fine people.
What are you doing/did you do tonight, TQC?
Have you been sleeping well lately?
As i've been doing lately, another driving question: Do you have any crazy/funny/aggravating/stupid/whatever learning-to-drive stories? I got my permit today.
Do you know what dagu is? It's very possible he spelled it incorrectly, so something close to "dagu" or "dangu" is what I'm looking for -- a mutual friend of ours says it's causing his platelets and white blood count to drop significantly. Google keeps telling me it's some sort of mouse-like rodent.
ETA: Okay, it's definitely dengue fever -- thank you guys! Does anyone know if you can fly back to the U.S. -- as a permanent resident -- while infected, if you intend to be treated here and/or what the prognosis is?
I am a female. And I am harassed every single day.
I get the honks, and the hollas, and guys trying to pick me up, and commenting on my ass, and the straight up blatant stares.
These things piss me off, but not as much as these little punk teenagers that hang out on the side of a house of a neighborhood street I walk down. Every. single. day. they make comments to me. "Damn girl I like those shorts. Sup girl? Heeey, sup!? What, you can't even wave to me?" etc, etc.
I try to just not engage them, but I am starting to rage a bit. A different route is not a possibility. I feel as though I might snap and start slapping the shit out of a little boy.
It's so disrespectful, and I'm just SICK of it. Sick of taking it.
Any suggestions? I don't really want a criminal record here people. These kids appear to be little high schoolers and underage. I wish I had a phone number so I could call the parents of whoever lives there, but if they just laugh it off then I enjoy more harassment.
(I'm specifically looking for anecdata about anyone who's been able to stop OCD-esque picking at their face/lips etc -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dermatillomania -- because I have had this issue for as long as I can remember, and I want to stop, and I just can't...my lips are a horror all the time) But, you know, any stories about overcoming bad habits = cool.
Does it matter if you are alone or with someone?
I just realized that when I see a cute person, I whisper "wow" out-loud. Which led me to recalling that growing up my dad used to go, "Mmmmmm" when he used to see some hot lady on the TV or in real life. It skeeved me out then, and just thinking about it now makes me cringe. :/
How do you study?
(I'm a senior in high school and I don't know how to study.. no ones ever taught me)
what's the weather like where you live?
Do you eat enough vegetables? What are your favourites?
rainbow snowballs, billboard, rugrats, red hot chili peppers, ben folds five, daria, the nanny
How long can you go without washing your hair before it looks or feels dirty?
What is currently your favorite fashion accessory? Do you have any accessories you love so much you wear every day (or very often) even if they don't always match your outfit?
Favorite subject in high school?

Of those that you got wrong, how likely is it for someone of your demographic to get it right?
We both like going to the pub to play pool, listening to live bands, etc. but this time around, I'd like to try something new.
They've been going through some stuff for the last year, and I'm pretty certain that this will only add fuel to the fire, what should I do:
try to stop my mom? warn my sister? HELP, I'm worried :(
shit you guys, I was too late..I just heard my mom scream and slap my sister..I went to stop her and she shoved me back and slapped me too. FUCK THIS, WHAT DO I DO NOW? :(
Please do tell us all about it.
What ~designs~ do you plan on doing?
Any at-home tips to help ease this horrendous feeling?
I have a kinda-crush on my roommate's friend but I'm certain he has no interest in being anything more than friends with me. Ugh he's cute and I need a rebound so badly but I'm a prude unless I'm in a relationship and I'm socially awkward.
