DK/DC- current favorite song?
What TV shows that you used to love have you become just meh about?
Tqc, should I feel bad for not giving her a cookie?
Is a new polo and new khakis and a pair of clean mostly new sneakers ok to wear?
How did you deal with it?
What's the last question you felt kinda stupid for not knowing the answer to?
Do you wear anything that makes most other people give you wierd looks/comments?
I'm getting a pair of Steve Madden combat-style boots for Christmas and it seems the general consensus is that this is a questionable fashion choice. IDC, I <3 THEM.
Do you like snow?
I used to like it when I lived in the Southwestern US where there never was any. Now that I live on the East coast and I actually have to live with it I hate it omg
where do you buy your shoes?
Ex. Attending a religious wedding, eating with a family that says grace, etc.
So I just got tickets for a Greyhound bus to go home last night before I went to bed. This morning in the shower I realized that I got the tickets for a day EARLIER than I had planned to travel.
I know that the tickets are good for a year after, so, should I just show up the day after it says on my ticket, and hope there's a bus? Or do I have to go through some sort of bureaucratic deal in order to get the date changed?
And yes, lesson learned, don't buy tickets while half-asleep snug in bed.
DK/DC - Where do you draw the line?
My Google-Fu fails me D:
ETA: Found'm, I guess they're just called Fill-in puzzles or something similar. "Fill-in Puzzles: These puzzles contain no clues. All of the puzzle’s words are listed off to the left. You must figure out where they fit in the puzzle."
What words surprise you when they have the red dots of spellcheck under them?
At halloween I spilt liquid latex onto my trousers, which are a silky satinish fabric.
I've washed them which seems to have helped a little, but there's still a lot of gunk stuck on them.
Is there a failsafe way of getting it out?
I just created a Sim with the traits of "Unlucky" "Loser" "Clumsy" "Neurotic" and "Absent-Minded". Based on this - how long will it be before they break or burn something down? I just started playing the game. Closest guess wins an internet cookie.
What is the oldest thing in your house?
My reason for asking- I could not get to sleep last night. At all. It took me nearly an hour and a half and I already didn't have that much time to sleep.
Even when I have a regular sleeping schedule and go to bed around the same time, it's been taking me longer and longer to get to sleep. It used to take me hardly ten minutes.
I tried counting sheep, but ended up giving them tiaras by the 21st sheep and by the 36th one, they were all miniature Ezio (Assassin's Creed) versions of the sheep. Complete with cloaked outfit and they came fully armed. Even did a little ninja-twirl as they hopped over the fence.
Needless to say, counting sheep does not work for me. Counting is too basic and the default version of regular sheep in a regular pasture jumping over a regular fence just doesn't work for me. I need something else to think/not think about.
P.S.- Flying home today, so I may not reply to comments till later. Sorry!

Any answer will do, even if you just feel like making me laugh.
ETA: I've had two "votes" for gallbladder so that's what I'm going to assume for now.
It's in a case on the dresser, so inside where it doesn't get a signal (and I remember turning it off). And I just had the crap scared out of me when a pretty woman's voice loudly told me to drive several hundred yards then turn left.
ETA: It is normal to leave a bagel in the fridge for future eating. Apparently people just really like my flavor since my boss' every seed bagel never gets taken.
What should I get?
Or do you have a PKA (Personal Kitty Assistant) or PBA (Personal Bunny Assistant) or PFA (Personal Fish Assistant) or any other permutation that you can think of?
I'm home for the holidays, so I posted a fb status saying that I was back. Two different people commented, asking, "your back?" I was sooo tempted to respond with saying, "My back? My back is fine. Why do you ask?"
And then I was chatting with my roommate on fb chat, and she says, "your lucky."
This just baffles me, yet I don't know whether to correct these people because I don't want to sound condescending.
I paid our phone bill instead of our Internet bill, but when I called AT&T to correct it ten minutes later, they said they'd cancel the first payment and my money would be available again immediately, and that I could go ahead and make the payment to the Internet as soon as I wanted to, so I did it immediately. WELL. Apparently that didn't happen and they held $220 instead of just the $110, and as a result, I overdrafted my account, so my bank took out $112 in overdraft fees. :| Ugggh.
What cell phone/cable/Internet provider do you use? Do you like their customer service?
AT&T. No. >:[
My boss and his wife invite my SO and me over for dinner often. They're all lawyers, so they start talking about law stuff and I just listen (or play on my phone) because idk what the hell they're going on about. :(
so in english, when someone says thank you, there are many ways to respond such as you're welcome, of course, no problem, etc etc.
in spanish, when someone says 'gracias' which is the most formal and 'polite' way to respond?
in intro spanish classes we are taught 'de nada' which seems kind of informal to me. what is the closest thank you-answer to 'you're welcome'?
How sick will we get if we eat them? They are beef tamales. And it was ~70 degrees out yesterday.
What else can go wrong for him today?
if you don't know and don't care, will you tell me something random about yourself?
Will you tell me about your experiences,. positive and negative?
I'm thinking about getting my bf a cleaning service for Christmas, I think he'd like it.
EDIT: What about hotel maid stories, do you have any?
I once called up for them to bring extra pillows, and the maid brought me a crib. That was interesting. Also, a maid at a hotel made a long distance call from our room and they tried to charge us. We were able to prove we weren't in the hotel at the time, not sure what happened to the maid.

We have one cat already who has always been an "only" pet. She doesn't like other cats, let alone other animals.
How do I introduce them? Will my cat always hate the dog?
"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus": a song about an adulterous woman having an affair with an old man or a loving father dressing up to preserve his child's fantasy of Santa Claus?
eh I suppose they could have had an open marriage too.
Will you complete the sentence with as many things as you'd like? I love ________.
For me it was remembering when emo meant hard core bands who had a singer who'd scream their emotions on stage, sometimes crying in rage.
what's been your favorite season so far? 4
who is your favorite character? deb
did you like lumen? yes
What are your plans for Christmas?
Did you miss anything obvious?
Context: I'm working on another story. The characters are in their sophomore year in college. They got engaged at the end of their freshman year but the girl's dad won't let her get married until she finishes her education. The boy is afraid of losing the spark so he decides to propose to her again every year until they can get married for real (one of his friends puts this idea in his head). The girl independently comes up with the same idea and ropes her a cappella group into composing a musical love letter to this guy. The only song I could think of (that his a cappella group isn't already doing) is "How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You." They've been together since they were 16.
Serious answers preferred, non-serious welcomed.

I swear to god there is nothing there. Halp?

Will you post a picture of your computer desktop?

What is your favorite modern holiday movie?
Favorite holiday drink?
Do I smell or something TQC? Do people find my sometimes-quite-ridiculous social anxiety offputting? (srs/nonsrs)
ETA: Would it be too weird to be like "hey, is there any reason we (my sister and I) weren't invited?" in a non-passive aggressive way?
What are some of the strangest sexual myths or innacuracies you've ever heard coming from someone who should know better (rather than a young kid)? Or any you just wanted to smack your head and say "Why in their right mind would someone think that?"
My old roommate thought you could get pregnant from a back massage
Edit: also, "Condoms are much more effective than the pill." - then what's the point of the pill?
Google-fu is failing us and we are curious. Thank you <3
ETA: We appear to have found it, so... who would you rather have with you during the zombie apocalypse: James May, Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson, or the Stig?
A fifteen year old girl with ALS has a "friendship" ceremony (which appears to be more of a marriage type deal) with her fifteen year old boyfriend, under the assumption that she will die within the next few months. I'm not really sure what to make of the video or the whole premise.
p.s. i like sweeter wines but not to the point that they seem sugary, and don't like them very dry. i also like 'em cheap.
1. My wife is a waitress at a restaurant/bar.
2. Every Saturday night the restaurant has karaoke.
3. Every Saturday night my son and I drive in for karaoke night. We each sing a song. He orders the fried mozzarella sticks. I order a rail bourbon, straight up.
4. My son is 13, tall and muscular, looks older than he is. He's also a special ed student dealing with Asperger's, so he's a bit socially awkward, but always hopeful. No girlfriend or dating experience yet.
5. A party of 20 had made reservations. It was a surprise party for a girl turning 15, and was composed mostly of 14-15 year old girls and some parents. They brought in a tray of cupcakes in lieu of birthday cake.
6. My son sang a song. It was "Hey Soul Sister". The girls gossiped and commented about him (nicely) and sang along to the chorus from their seats.
7. One of the girls came up to him after he sang and gave him a cupcake.
8. It's the first time in his life that a girl has paid attention to him.
What does the cupcake mean?
What should I read?
dk/dc/not picking 4 u: What is the last CD/album you bought/downloaded?
What type of cheap booze should I get tonight?
- They both cost the same amount, and they are sold at the same store, so it's not like driving distance factors into it.
- I have a boy coming over tonight and I want to sex him up.
- I have nearly-empty box of wine in the fridge...there is maybe one or two glasses-worth left
edit TQC, you will be happy to know that I went with the wine.
How old were you when they stopped going to appointments with you?
If you're married or dating, do you make appointments for you SO? What about for your parents?
I'm 22 and some of my friends STILL do this stuff with their parents or can't make appointments on their own.
I've gone to every appointment alone, unless I needed someone with me, since I got my driver's license.
I've made a few appointments for my dad because he's stubborn and do them for my mom sometimes because she's deaf.
all my co workers, including the boss are males. it makes me nervous like hell because i have never worked for a male boss/co-workers, ack!
i do not know anything about photography and am afraid i might find it hard to catch up and frustrate my co-workers (but i was given this internship because the boss is willing to teach and mentor me)
the other girl who is supposed to intern with me is away in new york and will be back in january (we are in asia)
i have never been on internship before and don't know what to expect, even though the boss seems pretty flexible and allows me to dress casually because formality is not an issue here
have you ever been on internship? how was it? any tips/calm down tips for me? :D
if you work in an office environment, how do you maintain good skin? my internship is for 6 months and i don't want the A/C to dry my skin out and make me get more pimples then i already have :(
how good is your gaydar (for men and women)?
Link phobic: $15 hoodie with built in earbuds.
If so, what's your favourite recipe?
What are your favourite holiday confections?
I need to return/exchange a faulty product. Do I have to go back to the exact store (location) that I bought it from or can I just go to any of the branches of the same company... ?
(I bought a dvd but the case wont open! Its locked :( )
Edit: Thankies. Ill just take it to any store location =]
Another question: Has anyone ever had any trouble ordering from Think Geek?
I ordered a product several days ago over $150 - apparently if its over that amount you have to send a copy of a bank statement to confirm billing address. I did this today after I recieved a second email about needing to send confirmation (delay because of lack of camera/scanner). I did this several hours ago, however just then I received an email from them saying I didnt get back to them and they have canceled my order and to please reorder... :S If i reorder.. will I have the same problem? I dont understand why they didnt get my email.. I got an email saying they got my email... Whats going onnnn ? :(
I need potluck ideas. It will be four of us.
What should I bring? Should we make a list?
Have you ever had to go to the doctor for a splinter?
How true is this statement?
What would you do if LJ shut down?
DNDK? Where are some good communities about the show "Misfits"
So... My name is Alexander and i live in main city of our Russian goverment - Moscow. And i have some answers on your unspoken questions: we drink vodka only on holidays, or when the soul is request; bears inhabit only in zoo; and we have freedom of speech (yes, we are democracy country).
So, more to the point. I need native-speakers, who can talk with me on the Enlish. My ICQ number is: 649-823-715
And my question: how are u?
If you have, what do you do for a living? In my town, blockbuster is open on Christmas. I mean... really?!
What's your favorite form of exercise?
What reason do you have to be happy this season? C'mon! I'm sick of all of the grinches.
yesterday my mom asked me what was the one thing i wanted to do with my life, no matter what, and i said i didn't know. now, i do know, i just don't like being open with my family. never have and i still can't figure out why. so 20 minutes later we had this conversation:
me: i figured out what i want to be.
me: i want to be a companion on Doctor Who.
mom: hmm. well, just tell the universe you want to meet a man like the Doctor.
me: i don't think you get this.
Anyone done this before?
Not about me, btw.
Do you think they need to?
How about a picture of a wedding gown you really like?
If you don't want to click, they're voting on a law that would allow internet providers to charge for access to certain sites, like paying extra for certain stations on TV.
I probably didn't explain that too well, sorry. :(
i rarely/never buy anything online. besides tickets from ticketmaster or stuff like that.
tonight i bought something from the UK and paid via pay pal (credit card)
it gave me a receipt number, but in the confirmation email it didnt have any shipping info. is this usual?
how long do you think it will take something to be shipped to canada (from the UK?) basically do you think it'll be here by friday? (i know, probably not)
do you do online shopping a lot? what was your last online purchase?
Do you prefer gloves or mittens? Can you post a photo of your favorite pair?
When was the last time you wasted good cologne/perfume on someone who didn't deserve it?
(I've done the former, but have written it like the latter the past 10 years)
I contacted the seller yesterday and they haven't written me back yet!
Will you reassure me that it will come by Christmas so I stop freaking out about it?
I wouldn't feel so bad if it was a different coworker, but this girl is new and this is her first job, she's painfully shy and just coming out of her shell. We had a $50 amount to spend and I don't want her to feel left out if it doesn't come in time!
Will you post a picture and link to something on ebay/amazon/etc you think every girl should have? The funner and cheaper the better.
Maybe we can share some good ideas!
Guys you can play too. All two of you.
I'll start with mine in the comments.
