If you could give two shits: Do you love American Dad? I'm watching last night's episode now.
What's the worst insect or arachnid bite you've ever gotten?
Inspired by me listening to Led Zeppelin I for the first time in yearrrrs. It reminded me too much of my dad, and also I got swept up in the ~indie scene~.
What are some of your favourite curse words and intimidating phrases to use when your appliance or electronic device stops working properly?
dk/dc: do you find your life exciting? what would you consider an exciting situation to be in?
(had to revive this one - I love it too much).
So this week I had 4 essay exams. One professor gave up 20 essay topics to choose from (all were really difficult topics that we never covered in class -- class time was instead spent on stupid presentations that had nothing to do with anything) out of which he would test us on only 3. Then I had a huge fucking final essay exam in another history class. Tomorrow morning I have 3 essays to do for another class as a final. Anyways -- I was feeling really relieved, as I thought the hard work was finally over. Not to be. Just opened my folklore exam -- 4 essay questions, and he wants 6 paragraphs per question. I fucking feel like killing someone right now. They are really stupid questions too. I can't think of a way to answer this ( Collapse )in 6 paragraphs. fuck this.
If you are not religious, would you pretend to be, for the same reason?
Things to take into consideration:
I farking love meteor showers
It is 19 degrees outside with 12 MPH winds that suck
The fields are about a quarter of a mile away
I have a final at 3 PM tomorrow; it is 3:17 AM rn
I am bored
Do you partake in the viewing of meteor showers?
If this question has been asked a million times, you're free to stone me.
Can you post screenshots?
Where do you find your pretty dock icons?
Are we people with macs all clearly giant douchebags?
DK/DC: What are your plans today?
Mine include taking a two hour commute to school (and it's snowing), taking an exam, waiting six hours, taking another exam, then going back home. I kinda want to cry about it all. Oh, and I have heartburn this morning wtf.
Is it funny?
I'm so freaking clumsy. I have an accident at least once a week. This week, it was tripping over air and totally scraping my knee and hands like a 3rd grader.
Do you have any daily goals? I try to make someone laugh everyday. I like being funny.
If you've tried both, which do you like better: corn syrup sodas or real sugar sodas? Real sugar is so much better. My gram and I went to this local Mexican chain last night and they had real, honest to god, sugary Coke in their fountain, plus they sell it in these big glass bottles. I don't think I'll be able to drink American Coke again.
Did your parents tell you that the easter bunny and Santa Claus weren't real early on or did they let you believe until you were older?
How did you feel when you found out that these childhood legends weren't real?
What do you plan to teach your kids, assuming you intend to have them?
Basically it's just me and The Spawn (6 months old). The huge family celebration will clearly not be happening.
How should I do Christmas instead?
(It is Spawn's first. Ignoring it altogether seems mean :P)
Most of them don't usually go out and whinge when one girl comes back and is noisy, yet came back shouting and talking really loudly.
The only boy, who is completely useless was the loudest, and I told him he then couldn't whinge about others coming back and being noisy to which he replied very sarcastically, 'oh yeah, I also complain so much about X and y!', to which I told him to f*** off. He's been annoying me and everyone else for weeks, but they all pretend to like him.
How do I deal with this? A lot of other people were in the room and he's the sort to take it badly.
The stockings. I love the silly toys they find and all the chocolate and pirouette cookies. After everything my family sits on the couches surrounded by gifts and crumpled wrapping paper and just eat candy while watching a movie until the afternoon
What is your least favorite part?
Clean up and tree maintenance
This has probably been asked already but idc, I'm sick and talking about Christmas makes me feel better
So, I've been having some issues at work, and I was thinking of going in today (my day off, and I work tomorrow) and talking to my manager about it. This is partly to show that I care about my job and want to make nice with my manager, and partly to figure out if I'm fired or not. Would you do it? Or should I just wait until tomorrow and go in to work, and speak with her then?
DK/DC: Have you ever had kefir? It's really delicious!
Who would you have picked to play Sirius Black in the movies?
My friend revealed that she didn't like Gary Oldman in the role D: I'm not entirely sure if it's because she's not that enthused about Gary or she had a different vision of who would play him.
Made me realise that I haven't seen the third movie in ages :O
ETA: What about the other characters as well since they've come up?
what religions and/or cultures were you most exposed to growing up?
my hometown is very muslim and very catholic. i actually never met any jewish people until coming to college, and i'm still a little shaky on jewish holidays and customs. i know next to nothing about hinduism, and all i really know of buddhism is from all the kids who read siddhartha and decided they were buddhists.
...eat an entire human being? You flip through a catalog of prisoners and you select someone, and for the next couple months, a professional chef will prepare each meal you will eat made from this guy. Breakfast, lunch and dinner for as long as it takes. Each meal will be made as delicious as possible, and you'll eat everything except bone and hair.
...make a porno of yourself sexually pleasing yourself with a garden gnome (its pointy hat, if you're a girl; the hole in the bottom, if you're a guy). After that, you put it online, and then put the link in all your social programs for one day. You can't make it a locked post
...be buried alive for 2 days? You're put in a specially built coffin that has 5 days' worth of air, and several flashlights. You can't bring any books, games or any form of entertainment with you. The coffin itself will be standard size. In two days, they dig you up and you get your money
...play a game of Russian roulette? The gun in particular is an unusual one that has 10 chambers, so you have a 90% chance of collecting your money in the end
...gain 100lbs and keep it for an entire calendar year? Day 1 starts the day you're officially 100lbs over your starting weight, so the whole process is you gaining the weight UP to 100lbs and then 365 days after that. It's a health risk, but it IS a lot of money
...go to prison for 3 years? It'll be your standard prison (no white collar lockup for you), and you'll share a cell and a toilet with a murderer serving 4 consecutive life sentences. It comes down to over 3 million for each year you're in the slammer
or pictures or anything that make you laugh from the office? i don't know.
if you don't like the office, will you post funny clips from other shows?
My boyfriend had a stomach bug yesterday, with it starting about 9 am. He slept the majority of yesterday and feels fine today (it's currently noon). He threw up like 7 times yesterday, so I kind of figured it was a gastrointestinal thing.
Before I knew he was sick, I kissed him, etc. We live together so I figure it's only a matter of time before I get it, but so far, I haven't gotten sick. My immune system sucks so this surprises me.
How much longer without being sick until I can assume I'm in the clear?
I've always cheated on this diet a little when the urge strikes me, but I had a pretty bad reaction last night that made me realize I can't keep doing this to myself. What new drinks should I try instead?
Are you a coffee drinker? How would you feel if you had to give it up?
What do you think is amazing? (Can be anything, not necessarily food.)

would you sleep in later if you didn't have these obligations?
is the time that you would have to get up a factor for you when making decisions about jobs, classes, etc? (poorly worded but hopefully you get my point)
Do you live in an apartment complex?
Do you like it?
Do you participate in resident activities (barbecues, ice cream socials, etc.)?
Are you friends with any of your neighbors?
Can someone please formulate an equation that expresses this?
ETA: idk i just love this review and think everyone should read it lol
i have second degree burns on my hand.
i dont know if i got a really crappy doctor or he just forgot, but he didnt ask if i had my tetanus shot done. (and i haven't)
people at work are freaking me out, and of course i googled tetanus (never a good idea) and now i am paranoid as shit. ugh.
should i run off and get a tetanus shot at a walk in clinic asap?
or should i calm the fuck down.
in your workplace, do you have to deal with auditors? how much do you hate them?
if you are in audit, how do you deal with difficult clients? :|
i'm going insane with my client who doesn't want to provide anything softcopy.
This weekend I will be put in charge of my friend's fish for Christmas/New Years, as my friend it travelling internationally. I still need to travel home form the 24-26th for Christmas, and I'm going by train (Amtrak, to be specific). Has anyone transported a fish with them on a train before? Is it allowed? Does it cost extra? (Note: It's a single fish in a small bowl. I think its a betta from what she's told me, but I haven't actually seen it yet)
DK/DC - How fast do you walk?
if you found it hard to say it back when you were angry at them, would you feel like it meant you maybe were not actually in love with them? do you think that when you ~really~ love someone you should be able to say it easily, even if you're pissed off?
*edit* Lets assume people still exist. I meant like what things do you think will exist that dont now?
How do I make it go back to normal?

When was the last time or most memorable time that you had a food-related mystery on your hands (or plate)? Did you totally fuck it up and then everybody laughed at you forever?

Now, where in the world was Alec Baldwin last night?

Assuming I'll be doing a good bit of graphic design (but will still have to lug the computer around everywhere I go), would the 15 inch really benefit me that much? I'm upgrading from a 13 inch Macbook.
I've read the specs, but it seems the graphic benefits are more tailored towards gaming and general resolution.
What do think of this idea? Is it stupid?
Got any better ideas?
eta: ideas of any kind, not necessarily sciencey, so long as they are "neat" gifts.
What's the last movie you saw that you hated? Why did you hate it?
This position shares accountability with the Shop Manager and Assistant Shop Manager for achieving shop sales goals. Maintains a leadership role in sales generation within the shop. In the absence of the Shop Manager and Assistant Shop Manager, has all duties, responsibilities, and authority of the Shop Manager. Ensures the shop’s #1 priority is customer service.
Assistant Shop Manager
Shares responsibilities with Shop Manager for the activities of the shop. Maximizes sales within guidelines set forth by the operating manuals. In the Manager’s absence, the Assistant Shop Manager has all duties, responsibilities, and authority of a Shop Manager. Ensures the shop’s #1 priority is customer service.
They sound pretty much the same except for the addition of "leadership role" so idgi. Has anyone worked in a store that has both of these positions and can give some insight?
What "new thing" do you covet?
If money wasn't an issue what would you buy yourself? (purely material)

I've checked the websites of Macy's, Nordstrom, Piperlime, Endless, and Zappos. Tomorrow I'm going to go to Macy's and Fossil, but I don't think I'm going to find it. Are there any other websites/real life stores I should check?
Edit: Here is a picture since it won't load on Fossil.
Thing is, because he's going to be away from me he's talking about marriage and, he nor i even knows if we'll still be dating by then or if he'll continue with the whole Air Force thing.
Is this a wait and see sort of thing?
If your married, how long did you date before hand and how did you know they were "the one?"
DK/DC/because I never ask serious questions: Where is the worst place to be gassy? My vote: in the shower.
Is there ANY way to deflect this? Anything I can say that might shut her up for at least a few days?
She tends to block the door when it's time to leave and I'm afraid I might flip my shit one day.
WHAT DO I DO?!
New Years Eve is coming up! Do you know of any bars in Seattle or Portland (Or any city in between the two) that are going to have a dj spinning soul or funk on NYE?
Are you going out anywhere fun for the New Year?
Also, I need to find something to wear. Can you suggest an outfit (dress) $100 or less that is longer than the stuff F21 sells?
I'm 5'7 and not fat, but too lumpy to wear anything skin tight.
Scenario: You're locked out of your house late at night, absolutely no way of getting in or getting a key and you don't know anyone in the town and don't have a phone or much money on you. Where do you spend the night?
Srs answers please.
I am a boy.
Alternative question (but please still answer above it's not hard):
How neat is your handwriting? I can be proud of mine sometimes but for the most part it isn't that neat.

Is there anything you tend to forget when you go away?
I always forget pajamas.
Should I just get some more of the same kind tomorrow, or should I try another kind? Which kind?
Do you like to try new things?
What is the weirdest thing you've experienced whilst driving/being a passenger?
Inspired by my drive home from work and having someone speed up to overtake me, swerve in front of me, then swerve through 3 lanes in the opposite direction.
So TQC have any of you done anything similarly desperate whilst fiending (for anything)? Did you regret it?
What is your vice when you are upset or depressed?
If an amnesia pill for the past 24 hours was real,would you take it?
