Edit: Another question: Have you heard the song Raise Your Glass by Pink? I think it's a great song, because it's so simple.
Also, has there been any Halloween costume posts yet? Link?
Do you purposely try to do things for good karma?
Has it ever paid off?
How do you think it works? Like, how many good/bad things do you have to do to get one big thing...or several small things.
Does it matter how you handle good/bad karma?
Ex.) You are mean to someone...does how bad you actually made them feel count, or just that you were mean in the first place matter?
If you scroll over the flavor sidebar, you can also see seasonal flavors.
Have you ever been to a zombie crawl? What kind of zombie were you?
Denver, CO. obliterated the world record this year with over 7,300 zombies. The previous record was 4,200. I was a newly wedded zombie.
What's on your mind?
What else can I do to not feel so sick, or what are your tried and true methods? I have no tea here and I feel too shitty to drive anywhere to get some.
My boyfriend's TV went out due to a storm last night and is not working yet (ETA: it just cameo n, I'm good) I need fun websites to visit (lately I've been addicted to cracked.com and rereading old bad_rpers_suck entries if that helps inspire you to what websites I can visit)
( Collapse )
If possible, I'd like to just put it together with clothes I already have instead of buying stuff from the costume stores.

Are the student loans going to then turn around and give that money back to me, or will they just keep it and be all 'k, guess you didn't need that bit of loan, thanks!'? I could really use that extra money. :(
Is dealing with government student loans a PITA for everyone, or am I just red-tape challenged?
What did you last have for breakfast?
So, TQC, what is your favorite way cook/prepare/serve fresh artichokes?
Oh, and could I just trim and separate the leaves, and cook it with the other veggies and pork roast in the crock pot?
Whenever I do, it's pretty severe. I'll go from having mild acne to HOLY-SHIT-A-GREMLIN-COULD-LIVE-IN-THIS-P
If I do, I will have to pay extra car parking, will probably get slightly more work done, i'd be working in the library which is warm, my laptop is heavy and if I end up staying in uni i'll end up spending lots of money on food.
If I don't I will go to the library quickly and get the books out that I need, come home probably get a bit distracted, not get back ache from carrying round a laptop, go to the gym but get cold in my cold house.
DK/dc How excited do you get when you first start seeing someone? I've only just been asked on a date and i'm silly excited. I hate dates.
I'm super excited for Fable 3 tomorrow and sushi dinner Friday night for a friend's birthday. Also, Saturday's Halloween festivities are going to be fun.
What are you not looking forward to in the month to come?
Next week when I will be working overtime. Oh well, extra cash for the Holidays, right?
Will you post a picture of your Halloween costume from years past?
( Collapse )
We're also thinking about making pickled vegetables. Besides cucumbers, what's your favourite pickled veg?
What's your favourite new show this fall? I'm really loving Raising Hope.
This morning on my way to work I won tickets to see Metric on Thursday :) WOOOOO
I'm feeling really put out, because my friends on my res floor who said they weren't going to buy the nasty tshirts and were just going to chill upstairs this week are currently downstairs wearing said nasty tshirts and boozing it up like no tomorrow.
I'm annoyed, depressed and disappointed in them at the same time. Now I'm getting targeted by the older residents because I'm not down in the courtyard drinking, or wearing a shirt. I don't want a shirt and I've got assignments and Practicums to attend today.
TQC, do you think I can hold out under the pressure?
Am I justified in being annoyed at my friends?
Can I stay at your place?
Sorry Guys, I'm freaked ETA:
What codes do you live by? Bonus points if they rhyme.
Do you obsess over little things?
Liberal or Conservative?
So I work for a publishing company and one of our branches publishes some manga type books. I got a letter from a prisoner in Oregon asking if I could send books or places he could order directly from publishers. The problem is that I did send him a book and it was sent back to me with a letter saying it wasn't sent directly from the publisher. I don't exactly know what that means since I actually work... for a publishing company.
Has anyone here had experience mailing stuff to prisons? I really just want to help this guy out. He just wants to draw! What have you mailed that has been successful?
Ex. Tommy No Nose, Joey The Lip, Frankie Blue Eyes, etc
Here's a list of some good ones: http://www.onewal.com/maf-nick.html
I'd be Big Nikki.
Anyway, she's done this again today, and I'm sick of it.
Should I just cut her out completely, throwing away the longest and closest (until recently) friendship I've ever had?
Should I text her and ask her "Do you actually realize how often you cancel and blow off plans with me?"*
*Does this sound SUPER confrontational?
I would really like to do some type of receptionist work because I can type very quickly, am very efficient with computers and programs, etc. Preferably, it would be in a medical office or hospital because I want to go into that field and it'd look good to have experience with medical related things.
The thing that sucks is that I have zero job experience, except for a week long "job" I had back in 2004 helping organize a big city banquet. I don't have much to put on my resume that is relevant to a receptionist position, besides the fact that I can type/operate computers very well.
Is there any sort of training or certification that I can get that might help me out?
I'm broke and don't have $ to go and buy a costume, but I have a see through lace-print black tank that I usually wear over things, but I was thinking of going the super-slutty-but-not-really-a-slut route by wearing it by itself over a hot pink bra. Maybe with some leggings or a skirt or something.
What can I be besides a tramp? (lol)
I was thinking I could do something 80s-ish and get really gaudy, but I don't know. Any ideas you can think of would be helpful.
This term I took random upper-level seminars in architecture (my field) and I'm learning stuff but it's too time-consuming and I'm like whyyyy am I doing this when I have already taken enough credits to have graduated twice by now (I do not need more credits).
tl;dr - What classes require the minimum effort (time-wise) for the maximum credits? Besides just taking 4 PE classes :/
Should I buy some cranberry juice and drink a ton of it just to be extra thorough?
Should I go to the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, which would entail being in a really awkward situation involving my best friend and my exboyfriend (they don't get along because of a prior-to-me-dating-him hook up drama. I'm also kind of upset with him right now)... Or should I spend the weekend getting awesome sex with my new boyfriend and going to halloween parties?
I am in my 3rd year of college but have sophomore standing because I was messing around and did poorly in a lot of classes my freshman year.
I am taking 18 credits a semester for the next 3 semesters and summer courses. I am only 15 credits away from completing my major (psychology)
I would need to take 21 credits to finish a Spanish minor. I loved Spanish in HS and took advanced courses, and took a Spanish class over the summer last year (I did okay, I got a B-. it was more accelerated than a 101 and I think I had a harder time remembering things from HS than I thought I would have)
I have no minor and sort of have room for the credit hrs of a minor, and there isn't many other minor programs in the things I'm interested in.
Should I bother trying for a Spanish minor?
if you have graduated college, did you do it in four years?
graduates/current students, what is your major? how about a minor?
Who wins in a fight?
Will you post a ridiculous contest and let us tell you who/what would win?
Spa gift certificate for nails, feet & massage.
Dinner, show, hotel in the city overnight.
Do you think tramp stamps are still cool?
Do you stretch properly when you do?
As in, short warm-up then stretch, then after you work-out you cool down?
If you don't stretch properly, do you stretch at all?
If you don't stretch at all, do you feel really sore after working out? Do you ever hurt yourself?
I've realized that my dance background makes me stretch religiously any time I work out. But I've talked to a few friends recently and found out they don't really stretch. They might touch their toes and lunge for a quick second, but that's about it.
If you do stretch, find some pictures and post which stretches are your favorite. Or even better, take a picture of yourself stretching.
Also, stretch. Because it needed to be said one more time.
I'm currently taking a federal courts class that was sold to me as CivPro 2.0. Turned out to be a lot more theoretical, but the professor is awesome, and it's all starting to come together and make sense, AND I'm finally seeing the practical applications of everything. I'm really enjoying it.
When will you turn the heating on if it isn't already?
How long do you have it on for a day in the winter?
I am in my bedroom and can see my breath.
Why am I always left out of the LJ trends? *SOB*
Haven't I been here long enough???
I went grocery shopping last night, and today while staring at the receipt realized I was ripped off for $10. Should I go back, or let it go?
Which should I pan fry to go with the chicken, fennel or brussels sprouts?
Edited for clarity.
What about icons from The Office?
They used to be everywhere.
Does it mean some of you with your horrible scary symptoms will actually be able to go see a doctor now?
(What is best is relative to the person)
What do you think is the worst way to die?
I am certain I have bronchitis. I am miserable, and so congested, and I cannot clear my fucking lungs. I have access to a nebulizer, and a rescue inhaler, but I obviously want to get better. I do not have health insurance, and I'm super broke. I'm working every day for the next two weeks, and I'd have to call out to go to urgent care, but how expensive can I expect it to be? What can I take to loosen my chest and be able to breathe? I'm so miserable.
I've been browsing Apartment Therapy and SaucyDwellings, so sites similar to those would be great!
What are some decent, but cheaper, menthol cigarettes? I smoke Marlboro Menthol Lights, but they're a little pricey at times!
So, TQC, what should I do? What would you do?
(& yay first post ^_^)
2)What's your situation?
Cushion for moving.
3)Do you eat caramel apples in fall? Could you eat them all year?
I feel like I'm losing friends haha I've seen these doctors (one specifically) every other week for an entire year! That's what's kind of keeping me from just calling and cancelling.
What was the last difficult decision you made?
I would never, ever want to give my dog H.P...has anyone ever given their dog Hydrogen Peroxide?
*My dog does not need to puke, for the record.
DK/DC- how much does your college major apply to your current job or you last job, if you are a college/trade school/whatever grad?
How excellent is garlic bread?
call you tonight :)
I'm trying to find out if I can hook a PC (the actual PC machine/box) up to a macbook, so that I can use the monitor of my macbook for the PC machine. I don't mean that I want to run windows on a Macbook, I mean that I just want to use the monitor of my macbook to view what's going on in my PC. Is this do-able?
Otherwise, I need to find out (and am in the process of googling the answer to) how easy/hard it is to hook my PC up to a TV monitor. Has anyone had similar situations or used a TV monitor (either flatscreen or a big box tv) as a computer screen? I'm bringing my PC (just the box) out on the road with me so that I'll have it at home for the holidays, and then fly back across the country with it when I leave home. I can take the machine fairly easily, but not the machine AND the 22" screen I have for it.
Would you consider a mother who is living with her partner of over three years (not the biological father of the child) a single mother? What if the bulk of the financial responsibility of raising the child is still hers?
How muich storage is on the biggest one?
I want to get my hair done a really deep brown with a burgundy tint, but I'm afraid my eyebrows won't match.
Should I let curiosity reign or do I really not want to know?
[edit: oh dear jesus I was adopted pleasepleasepleaseplease]
When was the last time you sincerely lost faith in someone/something?
I am FTM
how about "upper middle"? "working class"?
2)Would you vote for an amendment on your state constitution for the right to hunt?
I voted no, because I'm against stupid amendments.
3)What films are animation classics?
Naussicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Toroto, the Toy Story trilogy.
Does it frustrate/irritate you when people constantly proclaim their love for their SO early in their relationship? Like, they date one person for a week, run around like a chicken screaming "I LOVE HIR, I LOVE HIR," break up, complain zie's a jerk, then next week with another person, "I LOVE HIR, I LOVE HIR!!" I mean, that shit's tolerable in like middle school, but at what age do you start to find it completely unnacceptable?
To how many people have you said "I love you" (in a romantic sense)?How many people have you been ~in love with? Are you still with them?
2. If you pick up calls from numbers you don't recognize, how do you answer the phone? Do you just say, "hello?" or something like, "This is yourname?"
( Collapse )
2.are you a realistic person or unrealistic person? (feel free to elaborate)
Ex: buying a wedding dress with no wedding or engagement in sight
Ex: buying baby stuff when you're not planning on having a kid anytime soon
Or do you know someone who has done this?
Inspired by an episode of "Say Yes To The Dress" where a girl bought her wedding dress 5 years in advance. I thought that was waaaaay too soon to lay down serious cash on something she might hate the style of (or not even fit into) in 5 years.
Do you think I should contact anyone to see what I can do? I will probably meet with the department head during work on Wednesday, what should I tell her?
How long does swelling from getting tattooed last? My arm looks like a balloon.
When you're in a bathroom stall (and you know the lock is working) and someone knocks on it...uh...how do you respond?
Occupied! Out in a minute! Yes?
I don't uh, say anything, and then they try the handle and see it's locked and then...that's it...
TQC, WHERE ARE MY FUCKING SNICKERS BARS?!
Do you feel incredibly hungry when breaking a long fast, or just plain nauseous?
Should I have an apple, some hot chocolate, popcorn, or a pumpkin muffin?
Mine in comments.
What's the latest 'it's a small world' moment you've had?
To continue tonights dating/relationship theme, I just found out my step-uncle taught the guy i'm soon to have a first date with, and that my step-aunt is acquainted with his family.
Do I mention this? Or act surprised when he tells me everything I already know?
if you had to have someone pee in your mouth, ass or vag which would it be?
no you can not opt out sorry
I feel that time will help heal it, but I'm impatient and I need something else to help me in the meantime. Therapy is the last option, because it can get pricey and I have a busy schedule, and honestly, I don't know that talking about it over and over will help.
What else can help me? Has anyone gone through the same sort of dilemma?
Have you ever written a note to someone, expressing your feelings, but not given it to them? Did it help with any feelings you were struggling with?
( Collapse )
Alternatively, will you tell me the story of the last time you made a drunken ass of yourself?? Will you post a picture of you in your attire at the last wedding you attended?
Girl questions: Do you like Carlos Santana shoes? If so, which ones do you like the best?
What "feel good" stuff do you do on the side? Volunteering, holding doors open, whatever?
*sorry, got excited and hit enter too soon. I fully admit my idiocy.*
What are your favorite comfort foods?
Additionally, what is the most rediculous lie you have found yourself telling?
I'm not saying that i text while i drive, but it makes me cringe every time i think about it.
so I'm leaving my purse in the back seat.
