If you have a grey bedroom, can I see a picture of it please?
how many pregnancy tests have you/your SO taken in your lives since youve started having the sex?
me: so many i cant even count, i pretty much take one every cycle bc i am CONVINCED i will get knocked up, hasnt happened yet, *knock on wood 590459409 times*
Not bath products, I'm covered there.
Girl: Panties, boyshorts, thongs, commando?
These are your only options.
ETA: This was not a very well thought out question. Pick you're general chosen undergarment.
Would you assume that you would be speaking outloud in Spanish, or would you assume that she will speak outloud and you just write things down, etc ?
Am I going to fail, TQC?
do you have any vivid memories of reading certain picture books as a kid?
How do you celebrate far away loved one's birthdays?
DK/DC: 3 celebrities that you think are very ugly?
My cousin is a record rep for a newish label, and one of her groups that she is responsible for just got a single at number one on their genre's charts. Its a pretty big/exciting thing for her, and I'm really happy since she travels so much and works harder than pretty much anyone I know, but I told a bunch of family members today and they were all like "Ok? Cool, I guess?" and it disappointed me.
I am supposed to go into the doctor's office tomorrow to learn how to use a continuous glucose monitor that I've had sitting around the house for two years. The problem is...I can't find it. On a scale of 1-10, how pissed are they going to be when I call them at the crack of dawn and explain that I lost this device and don't see the point of commuting in super early when I don't have it?
The one receptionist...if I get her, I fully expect a reaction of around 8. She takes things personally. The other doesn't seem to care much though. I'm crossing my fingers that it is her.
I'm writing a paper for a class and the assignment sheet says "1750-2450 words (5-7 pages)" and now that I'm almost done with my argument and it stopped at 6 pages and ~1600 words, the word/page count on the assignment sheet seems off. 1750-2450 words would be more like 7-9 pages, right?
Since I'm not sure which is the intended goal, which should I aim for: the stated word count or the stated page count? Which would you do?
I'm thinking page count so that I can be done right now instead of +1 page or so from now :D
What did you procrastinate on yesterday?
So.... what's gonna happen to all of my shit when i die?!
we will then discuss said news stories.
Do you actually ask your home university? Or do you just tell him that the oral exam is fine? Why?
EDIT: wow! I'm kind of surprised at the answers but also not, since they pretty much come to the same conclusion that I did.
What can I eat that I'll be able to taste? Do you know any good nose-un-stuffing methods?
My older brother is also sick and instead of blowing his nose, he just keeps making disgusting blowing/sucking noises, no matter how many tissues I throw at him or politely remind him to use.
How could I murder him and make it look like an accident? 8|...jk

Has anyone else had a similar experience?
they didn't tell me how long it would take to get to me (I live in England)
Has anyone ever bought something from warner brothers shop? How long did it take to get to you? Just out of curiosity what did you buy?
For the past 3 months I had been wearing the same pair of contact lenses, thinking they were monthly anyway, I kept pushing back my eye doctor appointment because it's been hard for me to get off campus. (stupid, I know).
To make matters worse, they ended up being bi-weekly lenses. I went to the eye doctor the other day and she said the outside of my eye looked unhealthy and oxygen-deprived so I needed to be careful, but everything else looked fine.
My question, is when I put my new contacts in (after a week without any lenses), I feel like I have an eyelash in my eye but there's nothing there. It kind of goes away when I take out my lenses, but the feeling still lingers.
What's going on, TQC?!
I want to do something for this lady cause I feel kind of bad asking her to drive me and my dad to the hospital that first night, especially when it was so late, and making her take time out of her day to drive me around (I don't drive). I apologized up and down for waking her up but she shrugged it off. So aside from just giving her gas money, which I intend to be generous with, what can I do for her? She likes to needlepoint, so I was thinking of making her something out of plastic canvas, which she was interested in when I told her about it.
Should I try to get something close to fashionable? I tend towards the blocky hipster frames, cos I think they are adorable and they frame my face well.
Should I get the ugliest fucking glasses ever? I mean, just freaking hideous, giant, 80s style coke bottle monstrosities, and attempt to pull them off as ironic?
As an aside, I am attempting to glue/tape my glasses together to get me through the day (pardon any spelling errors, I cannot even see the screen). On a scale of 1 to 10, how nerdy am I going to look?
if so, do you believe they can physically hurt us? why or why not?
Gym B: is 2 minutes away from home. Membership is $40/mo for a year (or if I can get mom to join, $35/mo). They have classes but the classroom is REALLY small. Their hours are 24/7. This gym is 1/8th of the size of gym A. Plus side of this gym is the 24/7 availability.
Which gym would you join?
Feel free to share other people's stories as well!

Who else in this fine group finds that their depression or anxiety WORSENS during these gray shitty months? Any good remedies?
What are you buying your other half for Christmas?
what is the most physically painful thing you've ever experienced?
I'm applying to a job in England, and I have to fill out an application.
So, on the application, there's this grid where you write about your college education. In one column, you write in your college's name, then in the next one, you write in your major, and then the next column says, "Level" and the one next to that one says, "Grade."
What do these...columns mean? I'm assuming "grade" is like your GPA, but I don't know what "Level" is.
They're also asking for my National Insurance Number. Is that like my social security number? Should I put that or leave it blank?
I just redid my doll body pattern...again. This is revision 11 of the current series.
What do you find yourself working and reworking over and over again obsessively? What is your ultimate goal?
I have determined that I have a swollen lymph node behind my ear.
Were they right or will you be suing for malpractice?
It's a question on the application (okay, the question is: why do you want to apply here?) but I'm really bad at bullshitting. I want to apply there because I need a damn job and the registry lady kinda knows me and said she'd hold a place for my application.
How should I answer the other questions, "what didn't you like about your previous employers"?
because really I had no issue with my previous employers, except I didn't think one place trained me well enough.
plz halp, tqc!!
I made egg nog with brandy last night and it was so good!
ETA: If you had a choice between homemade vanilla extract or homemade clementine jam, which would you want to receive as a Christmas present?
Does devouring it mean it's a success after all?

What would TQC do?
i am supposed to interview for a full-time position in the office where i'm currently an intern. my interview is at 4, and it's on the same floor where i'm already working . the lady in HR gave me the phone number and office number of the woman i'm supposed to meet. should i call right before 4 and make sure she's expecting me, or just drop by her office a couple minutes before?
are you the kind of person who stresses about really minute things like this?
Because of this, I've put in applications at all the restaurants in the area only one of which was hiring. I haven't heard anything back from them. I know follow up calls can be a good idea, but my problem is...
most of the places weren't hiring anyway!
Should I still call them back or just wait until they need help?
Also, I really really really really want to work at Steak and Shake. I'm there ALL THE TIME. My best friend's boyfriend/my friend works there and he said they need help. He also says that the managers hate getting follow up calls because they're just annoying. How do I win my way into a serving job there?! Or I guess anywhere for that matter -_-
I've only had one other job and I had it for four years. I was really lucky with getting it, too, I didn't even have to fill out an application, so this is seriously all very, very new to me.
If you use the word classy too many times, does it become less classy and a non-word?
Will you post a picture of something classy you would wear?
Preferably Harry and Hermione's dance. Or any R/Hr ones.
I was working at my computer, and she shouted through the (closed) sliding glass door for me to shut my blinds. Pretending I couldn't tell what she said, I opened the door and asked if she said something. She responded by demanding why they were open. (Not wanting to start anything, I said it was so my plants could get sunlight).
Would you do something like that? Do you think it's any of her business?
One simple thing that you wish could happen?
a bottemless cup of yocrunch (strawberry and crunch)
I'm making turkey soup out of the leftover turkey we had. The white meat is very dry; would cooking it "low and slow" on the stovetop in a soup pot (with other soup ingredients) make it more tender? What can I do to make the meat more tender?
Such venerable communities as . . .
Venerable communities such as . . .
What can I make with this that is not casserole, sandwiches or soup?
What are some geeky things that you enjoy?
No dinner-and-a-movie dates, please.
- Lots of static electricity in the air
- Wind blowing my bangs out of whack
- Driving past a line of trees or something where you're passing alternately through shadows and BRIGHT SUNLIGHT very quickly
- Dropping things repeatedly on accident
Are you surprised by the results you get from these things? This isn't to promote the link, I'm just curious because some of my results surprised me. It's a research project to see if people have hidden biases regarding race, sexuality, religion, etc. I generally think of myself as a very unbiased person but this website seems to think my subconscious is very biased )))=
I am home alone (with my hamster) with a pile of work, a boyfriend who "isn't in the mood to talk" (bastard, how dare he) and no heating. I want chocolate. Is it worth risking the slippery ice, when I'm prone to slipping, to get some at the corner shop?!
DK/DC: What's your favourite type of tea and how do you take it?
Pictures are good.
Edit: I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this is ridic. My works cited is thorough and I have in-line citations where necessary. This is going to cost me so much money to photocopy, and Idek if I can find EVERY SINGLE resource I used because I had to get books shipped from other libraries to my branch. fuuuck me.
Dk/dc do you like mince meat tarts?
If you're a leftie, are you surprised how many righties bring up you're a leftie?
I'm left. EVERYONE comments on it, it's kinda cool. :)
Do you slack off more with online/correspondence courses than you do with on campus courses?
DK/DC: What are you favorite sports teams? I love my hometown teams: Cubs, Hawks, and Bears. I suppose I can throw the Bulls in there by default. Basketball is lower on the sports totem poll for me.

I'm casting on, and it seems to get tighter and tighter to the point where i'm forcing the needle through. What am I doing wrong?!

How strict do you think is too strict when it comes to parenting?
Do you think parenting books are useful or just repackage rehashed common sense?
