What are your favorite dark comedies?
Should I also call the police station in that area in case anyone was lovely enough to hand it in?
When's the last time you lost something important? What was it?
Your own pet is certainly allowed.
And no, I don't have an octopus as a pet. :(
Do you think it's too personal if someone touches your face?
Today my boss cupped my face in his hand and said I'm still beautiful without makeup and left me standing on the fire escape at work like, "Uh wut." He has never touched me before today even though he has flirted incessantly with me.
Have you ever really wanted a switchblade?
I sure as shit do.
If one of your guy friends was going as you for Halloween (you're a chick) would you be flattered?
Would it be filled with awesomess, sadness, worry, bliss, something else?
What would be the most important part/event of your life so far?
IS THERE ANYWAY I CAN RECOVER MY OLD RIGHT CLICK + COPY STUFF AFTER I HAVE RIGHT CLICKED + COPIED SOMETHING ELSE?!!
.... please tell me how....
One of my IRL buds has suggested "So, remember those co-workers of mine I introduced you to the other day? They asked if you were my boyfriend and I did not know what to respond with. Are we dating or are we still just FWB or what?" I'm so bad at this shit I have to have outside help, durrr.
And yes, this is still all relating to FWB/boycrush. I was too chickenshit to bring it up on Saturday so I promised myself I'd try again this week...
DK/DC: Did your parent(s) read to you when you were a kid? What was that one book that you ALWAYS demanded they read to you, even though they tried to get you to pick something different? Mine was Green Eggs And Ham.
Do you read (or want to read) that book to your kids?
If you would ask first lets assume they've already left and you can't.
Do you share toothbrushes?
You have washed your hands and there is no clear hand towel - WHAT DO YOU DO?
Do you have a bathroom bin? If not, why, you horrible inconsiderate person?
update: i actually ended up going because i felt guilty. ha.
Over a month ago I walked the dog in the rain while wearing flip flops. As I approached the flight of painted concrete stairs across the street, I thought "this is a horrible idea", but on I went. I slipped and fell down the whole flight of stairs, landing on the sidewalk. I sliced open my right leg, and banged up my left shin pretty well, and got some pretty good bruises.
Thing is, a couple places on my shin are still sore and painful to the touch more than a month later. I realize shin injuries take a little extra time to heal, but I'm worried because it still hurts. Is it worth going to the doctor to see if I actually did some real damage?
Are you feeling any strong emotions at the moment? What are they in regard to?
What is your favorite gem stone?
Is it OK to keep clothes in the same space as the gas boiler?
I ask because my bedroom in my new flat doesn't have space for a wardrobe. Instead the owner has installed clothes rails in a cupboard in the room. Alas this room also contains the boiler. We moved in during the summer but, with winter approaching, we've started switching the heating on. I'm a bit concerned keeping clothes in this cupboard is going to damage them in some way.
Edited to ask another unrelated question
2) I am being creative and making some pate mix to use in my packed lunches this week. The recipe calls for flageolet beans which have proved difficult to find. I'm substituting them for butter/lima beans but going to cook them first. Will it be OK to use them in the pate mix after they've been cooked?
Do you have any experience with consolidation loans? Please share your experience and/or advice? I need to look into one for my student loans and I have no idea where to even start, at all. :T
Alternatively, what do you currently do for a living? What do you like/dislike about your job?
Part of the reason that our politics seem so tough right now and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we're hard-wired not to always think clearly when we're scared. And the country is scared.(This is citing American politics, fwiw.)
If you read this statement - without any context or direction, what thoughts come to mind? Do you agree or disagree? Why?
How important is it for your SO to give you a ring before you get married? How important is it for it to be a diamond?
p.s. I already made an appointment with the vet.
Do you have rules when accepting/rejecting friend requests?
How do some people have like 1,500 "friends"?
My fiance and I were early by 10 minutes so we started to set up our account and then we waited. He got bored and went to wander around and the salesman asked why we were taking over a contract instead of starting a new one. I told him that it seemed like the easiest way and I thought it was a good deal. The salesman offered me a better deal at half the price with a free phone.
As I pondered this the time went by and this person didn't show. I had time to go get my eyebrows done and tea and everything! We finally left after waiting 50 minutes.
I got an email from the girl saying she missed us by 5 minutes claiming she didn't know her bus times and was wondering when we were free to try again as she already signed up with a new phone and now has two contracts and needs to get out of this one.
Would you go for the better deal or would you try again? If you would give her a second chance and spend more money what are the reasons?
What would you tell her?
Even if I think she's sincere about her mixing up her bus times I want to cancel on her and just sign up for the cheaper deal.
ETA: She's a complete stranger but seemed nice when we arranged things.
Should I apply with my stepfather's information anyways or should I consider Sallie Mae loans? Just how dangerous are Sallie Mae loans? From what I can see, it looks like there's very high interest and I'm not sure that's a good idea to apply for them.
I'm 23 and I cannot see a way to file as independent, so I'm a bit worried because if I don't find loans, I have an apartment down there that I'd have to find a way to pay for, unless I found a subleaser.
ETA: I'm trying to return to Illinois State and I am from Illinois if that helps any. Also, I'm technically a senior but switching majors so I'd be kind of starting over.
awkward tights syndrome = the crotch of your tights is awkwardly hanging lower than your actual crotch.
Honestly, I am thinking about ordering a pair.

I'm sending some mail to crayola_bomb and I noticed that the shipping cost is basically the same if I send 1 lb of stuff vs only sending the tiny little thing I was originally going to send. So now I'm going to send 1 lb of random things.
What kind of things should I send?
non-srs answers are fine, but I might take you seriously.
But they seem to be the best part of a hooker costume to me.
Now they're in style now and I like trying new styles so I'm thinking of buying these in gray,
EDIT : fixed the link, I hope
Awesome or lame gift? (Or other, details in comments?)
Do you wear holiday-themed socks or other clothing? If yes, just around the holiday or throughout the year?
What is your personal style when it comes to time management? Do you need to schedule everything - even a lazy Sunday? Or does making a time frame pretty much freak you out? Do you have a friend that drives you nuts when it comes to always being off schedule - or maybe always having to section everything off into a time box? (Sorry about the ranty question there.)
When you hover over a user icon, do you see the link/ option for "ban everywhere"? (I'm trying to figure this out because apparently, you're supposed to be able to block ever having to see comments from a person by clicking "ban everywhere" but I can't find it or figure it out. And I have worked with LJ FAQ.) Also, fyi, I do have the option to "ban" but not "ban everywhere".
How much cleavage showing is too much?
How much leg showing is too much?
It's totally fucking weird if I go, right?
Is that email totally lame, too?
What is your favorite thing about the human body?
What do you get from your usual coffee shop?
Have you ever been to the taping of a TV show? Which one?
I went to Jeopardy years ago and it was kind of boring.
How and why were you pissed/annoyed?
(You don't have to name names if you don't want to)
I am trying to estimate a budget for when I move there in about a year...
I haven't seen my brother since August 2009 and I haven't seen my dad since January 2010.
My cats are Theo and Joe.
DK/DC What is something you're currently waiting for?
Let's say you are looking for a retail job or food service job, which store would you most like to get a job at? Ex. McDonalds Walmart, The Gap, etc.
What is your favorite kind of muffin? Will you tell me about times when you thought you failed baking but it turned out ok?
[Edit: Do you put icing/frosting on your muffins? I've never had a muffin with icing before. Is that a common way to eat muffins?]
[Edit2: The muffins are done and taste great! Here's pics and recipe if anyone's interested]
If so, what do you do?
Do you like it?
Have you ever had a similar problem? How did you deal with it?
Here's my hair

moi: social liberal, economic conservative
I could stay in this house, except one person wants to leave (but may not/may not find anywhere), it can get noisy, they're friends but can get very irritating, we're all on the same course so I don't feel like i'm leaving work as it were, there's going to be a massive rush on houses next year. There's 6 people.
Or I could live with approximately 8 people, some of whom i'm close friends with, others I don't know so well, have a real laugh with, all on different courses, aren't into house parties so it'd be fairly quiet but haven't approached them about living with them and there's no guarantee of a house. Also it could damage relations with the current people as they'd have to find somewhere else to live/new housemate(s)
dk/dc, how do you make yourself confront someone about their behavior when you know it'd cause an atmosphere, but has to be said?
Like someone came up to you right and legitimately said, "Ok, here's a bajillion dollars and I took care of everything. Your life is on hold for a year (work, school, no family emergencies/death) and everything will be the same when you come back. Do what you want and spend as much as you want on my dime for a year and there are no negative consequences."
What would you do?

I have a seating audition tomorrow. at the same time, my roommate needs to study for a psych exam.
I don't have a practice mute with me, so if I play, it can only be muted so much.
The audition is pretty competitive, and the people in the orchestra have lots of beef with each other.
My gpa depends on this audition.
My roommate had requested for me not to practice.
Should I be a bitch and ignore her, or sympathize and fail my audition?
ETA: It's 8:31 right now, most public recreational sites are closed, c'ept for the library, which is a couple of miles away. she doesnt know how to drive and her books are at home. Also, the house is having a party so she cant go downstairs either.
Mine is a light room and some light jazz in the background in some comfortable clothing, with chapstick, of course.
Any tips for keeping her calm? She has a sensitive stomach (and diarrhea right now, ugh) so I'd like to avoid using a lot of food as an incentive.
Did the explanation help or make it worse?
I am trying to see some stuff I have never seen before.

DK/DC - If you were an ice cream flavor, what would you be? Feel free to get creative!
I would be mango ice cream with coconut flakes and raspberries
I have dark fuchsia, but not purple. I'm probably going to wear something with purple eyeshadow or something.
If not or you want extra credit, what's your favorite guilty pleasure TV show?
TEEN MOM. The reunion is on in four minutes. Reaction post anyone?
I just discovered The Nerdiest Bar On Earth is opening soon in Sydney and I know a lot of people who will wet their pants over this:
Not to mention the Ice Bar (you get a huge thick winter coat upon entrance).
What should I do?
Wtf should I do? Just ignore it?? Go to a store and demand some answers??
I'm pretty hungry now, but its 22:44, so I think i'll just sleep a bit peckish.
He opened the door for the two women and they walked into a room that contained two sterile metal tables in the center.
