If you had unlimited funds to use towards starting your own business, what would you do?
can guys get drunk enough to forget having sex with someone?
i've always said so, but i have friends who argue no guy who is blackout drunk can get it up. i'd say i'm living proof, as is my friend, but then two of our friends tonight were all, "They're just lying/avoiding it! They remember, they just don't want to address it!" AND THIS ARGUMENT JUST KEEPS COMING UP.
WHAT DO YOU THINK TQC?
I also need warm but thin fingerless gloves that cover all but finger tips. Where can I find them??
who do you share a birthday with, fictional or otherwise?
Tell me your stories about traveling with lots of strangers--flying, taking Greyhound, whatever. Most annoying fellow passenger? Coolest passenger? Best trip, worst trip?
They're making the Hobbit, which is a prequel to Lord of the Rings. In the event they can't get Ian McKellen to play Gandalf, which elderly actor would you like to see play that character?
TQC: How do you react when people jump out and scare you (or do similar things)? This child has no idea what is in store for him if he tries to scare me. I will go ballistic.
Also: do you like children?
I can't stand them.
would you like us to assign someone to butter your muffin?
ETA: you can say what you did too, we're all friends here psssh
I usually watch Fried Green Tomatoes or The Goonies.
I've seen both, but the person I'm with has not seen either. They would love both and it's about 4 in the morning if that makes a difference.
ETA: Or American Psycho?
If so, how long did it take to work?
and if you're thinking nothing, think harder. think botflies.
what are you resenting right now?
what are your big plans for today?
How is your week going so far? If you work, what days do you get off for the New Year?
I know he's about14-15, has a pet snake, and some tropical fishies, and he likes video games like pretty much everyone else his age, but I don't really know that much else about him.
Will you give me some last-minute ideas?
I have an 11 week old Cocker Spaniel mix. He's really smart! He's got the very basic commands down (sit, lay down, stay, and come).
What should we work on next?

i am going to a hockey game tonight, and my friends want to drink beforehand bc the beer at the place is ridic. expensive.
i really wont have time to pre drink before we have to leave and they suggested for me to have one at my friends house and one on the subway.
i refused saying i think its kind of gross and tacky to drink on the subway. esp during rush hours. plus im not 17 anymore, and if i wanted beer i could buy a beer at the game, really.
they got all attutude-y saying i'm acting like a snob.
do you think i'm acting like a snob?
do you predrink? what about in public, obviously hiding the booze?

DK/DC, what is your favorite Italian dish?
Do they have overhead compartments like on airplanes?
Am I going to have to sit with my bag the whole time?
I'd really like to get up and move about the train for a bit to stretch my legs. Eleven hours is a long time to sit in my seat.
will you post them? they are generally quite amusing and i know we all enjoy a good lol.

i just had mcdonalds for the first time in a very long time, and now it feels like my insides are dying. :(
Do you see any problems that I might have by doing this?
Am I right to think it's a problem with the unit itself (it is the radio that came with it, standard two speaker attachment)?
Will I really need a wiring harness? What exactly does that do?
Just now, a little boy rang my doorbell and asked if he could take my dog for a walk. I was like "Uh, who are you?"
He introduced himself, and shook my hand. My mom said that he has been walking my dog for a while, so I gave him the leash, said "I guess you can take him to the end of the street" and closed the door.
Apparently, he is a foster child who lives up the road and has been having a hard time making friends, so he spends the afternoons playing with my dog. I've just never been home when he has come over.
NNNNNGH. What is your last cringeworthy moment that you super regret?
Why am I such a gay man magnet?
NON SRS ONLY.
Edit: Apparently posting to LJ works. But thanks for the tips!
Why isn't Megara, from the movie Hercules, one of the Disney Princesses?
( Collapse )
DK/DC: Then don't answer the question.
What are your over indulging cures
I'm an early person. It's to the point that I have to actually FORCE myself to leave for things later than I'd prefer to, because I'm always so fucking early for shit.
1. Clinique superfit foundation
2. Clinique all about eyes
3. Dior show mascara
4. Primer, I use lancome right now, though considering switching. I got a sample of smashbox prmer!
5. Any clinique lipstick
Also, what are some really yummy smelling lotions/shower gels, etc, that you use? Mom got me a vanilla cupcake travel set from sephora for Christmas, and the body butter smells good enough to eat!
edit: ALSO, I just got hired for a part-time lab assistant job. I don't know what to put as my annual income, because I don't know how many hours I'll be working. I also don't know my work phone number. What should I put for those form areas?
OPTION #1 (in turquoise) with a white button up under it and possible a tie.
OPTION #2 (in colbalt) with a black or white button up and a tie.
I can't decide and I'm going to the mall in like 2 hours. Which one should I wear for NYE?
dk/dc: what's for dinner?
If you had seven kids to feed and basically just enough money coming in to make it month to month and your SO was offered a job for six months in another state that would amount to a year's salary, would you want them to go?
*just your SO is going...you're staying in your house with your kiddos
Apologies if this has been done before. I assume it has. So a billion sorries.
I'm so annoyed and fed up with having to detail clean my house almost daily. I'm about to start back to full time school on Jan 10th AND possibly a job next week. At this point, while having no school/work, I'm already burnt out on cleaning the house and making sure everything is done. Help??
1) We have a large open living room/dining room/kitchen/foyer with a L wall as support. The living room/dining room area has dark brown laminate wood flooring and the kitchen/foyer has light tile. We have a sliding glass door at the back of the house, in the dining room; the front door, as well as the door from the garage in the foyer. It's a one story house and we have 2 dogs and 3 adult humans living here. All of these factors are making it to where I'm having to dust, vacuum, sweep, and steam mop daily and it STILL manages to look dusty with in a few hours. Do you have any secrets to keeping your house clean from dust/dirt/hair/etc?
2) How do you split up chores in your household?
3) Do you have any cleaning tips/sites/blogs that you frequent? Can you link me?
ETA @ 5:26pm EST: I guess it would have been helpful to mention that I have allergies and so keeping the house as dust free as possible is fairly important as it helps me not scratch my eyes out. My house is FAR from perfectly clean all the time, but I guess it's sticking out so much more to me right now because we're throwing a NYE party and so I'm trying to get it all nice for that. AND stressing about starting the new semester + job. UGH.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how uncomfortable/creepy is this video? Grown man who calls himself a fox talks about getting excited when a little boy comes to see him and touching occurs. The Little Prince is a great book, but I'm not sure if I'm on board with this film version, even if it is Gene Wilder
What kind of accounts do you have? (checking, savings, CD?)
Do you like your bank, and if not, why not?
If you have, then will you list instances of moral hazard?
2) Have you ever had a spa treatment? How was it? Would you do it again? If you haven't, what would you like to try?
3) Bubble baths with your lover: Romantic or stupid? Does the appearance of champagne change this?
EDIT: There's no Walmart near me, Target doesn't have any, and all I've seen at CVS are packs of many small tubes of glitter.
Would you rather play this or this at a (low-key) NYE party? Something else? (Amazon links, searching desperately for something that I can order tonight so it will arrive in time)
Sick of hearing about New Year's? What was the most awkward gift you received this season?
Why, at 21, have I ended up having dated quite a few girls?
breakfast food (like eggs & pancakes) for dinner?
dinner food (heavy stuff... like lasagna or enchiladas) for breakfast?
What did you buy today?
For me it was a tour of Annapolis' Historic District @ skyscraperpage. I enjoy looking at old architecture and this thread really hit the jackpot.
dk/dc: How old is your house?
Do you use paper toilet seat covers for public bathrooms?
Do you believe in the 5-second rule? (AKA if food touches the ground you have 5 seconds where you can still eat it)
If you said yes to both, can you explain your logic to me?
Can you share some sites you find amusing? How about some web comics? games?
Please, share any page you think will help me to have a good time!
TQC LUSH addicts: are any of the discounted holiday gifts worth getting? I don't use bath bombs and I'm only interested in the vegan gifts.
- The L Word
- Dead Like Me
- Arrested Development
While I was walking home from work, I thought the foot path was just a bit wet from it raining recently, but it seems it was covered in extremely slippery muddy water so not only did I fall on my arse and graze my knee and get mud all over me (it's even in my hair), but I SLIPPED AND FELL TWICE MORE while attempting to get up. Ruined my tights, too :(
I'm trying to collect stuff from other people who have borrowed stuff long ago and never returned it so if I say something like "I'm to recollect stuff that people borrowed over the past year, can you please drop the books off with ______ the next time you see them?" But it just seems so nice....not forceful enough.
I know the words, but my spelling is awful!
What is the likelihood that I'll totally alienate everyone and have no friends? :c
ETA: DK/DC/Quit this socially-anxious-"Validate me!"-crap, 2nutsforwords: Are you still eating holiday left overs? What delicious wintery foods are you planning to make in the next couple of days?
"oh corn dogs"
AND I WAS LAUGHING THE ENTIRE TIME IT WAS ON, and I even asked another shopper, "Am I hearing things or is this fool crooning about corndogs?" and the girl was like, *listens* "OH MY GOD IT DOES SOUND LIKE HE'S SAYING CORN DOGS! HAHA!" but we never came to a conclusion as to whether or not he was ACTUALLY singing about corn dogs :/:/
DO YOU KNOW WHAT SONG I AM TALKING ABOUT?
It was like a R&B/pop song.
Would you expect them to contact you regarding dinner?
It's 9pm, should I give up? Is it desperate to send another text to see what's up?
Do you have any New Years Eve traditions?
DKDC: Will my parents make their standby flight back home? The extra seats keep getting filled but the flight leaves in less than an hour so there's a possibility they'll make it...
I'm nervous, because I'm supposed to get about 1,000 for the whole set (my aunt gave it to me to get rid of it, but the bed is too creaky for my sexytimes lifestyle and she said I could sell it) and I feel like for shitty college town, WV, that's a lot to assume I can get.
will you cheer me up?
can i have a hug?
dk/dc: coke or pepsi?
Will you describe what you wear to bed?
Does this change if you have overnight guests? If so, what do you wear instead?
I'm just looking over my photo albums and it's sort of creeping me out, which I suspect is not an appropriate response.
Tl;dr : Am I right to be offended that a guest refuses to eat or drink anything offered to them in my house when they've been staying here for several days?
When do you normally add people on facebook? Would you add work colleagues to your facebook page?
When would it be OK to add someone as a friend (how long would you have to know them)?
I need new boots and are considering another pair of Docs. I had a pair like ten years ago and they didn't impress me. I think they may have updated them by now. There was zero insulation or padding and they took a long time to break in and were just generally not comfortable to me, but people are always saying Dr Martens are great. I was looking at the shoe store and they had a pair of them, but I don't know if it's the same kind that has the guarantee(you have to get those online). The ones in the store did have some padding and insulation. They didn't have my size so I couldn't try them on and I want to get the lifetime kind anyway which may not be the same boots.
My SO's mom threatened to send him to jail for drinking at a family dinner on Christmas. He is going to be 22 in May. JAIL. FAMILY DINNER. WTF.
( Collapse )
ETA: Ordered them yay! And a book on Tesla, cos you know, NERD.
Eta: how old do you think is too old to still believe in Santa?
Is there a phrases which goes something like 'if you can't see the something-or-other, chances are it's you'?
I JUST took the last bite of my food that I have been waiting to eat. (Dinner and dessert...ughhh)
EDIT: Actually he just said he was picking someone up, when I asked him what that meant, he explained that he has a lot to do so...no plans...
Does this sort of crap happen to you, too?
Do you just accept this from certain friends and know not to plan stuff or what?
What is your menu for a new years party if you are having one?
What are your favorite appetizers?
(bonus if any of them are vegan, I will have a good amount of vegans at my house on new years and do not want to disappoint!)
what are some good teas?
Right, so it has come to our attention that someone in my circle of friends, who's sort of the new girl in town, has been faking her supposedly British accent and is actually from Canada. It's been pretty bloody obvious from the beginning, but it's now been confirmed officially that she's never actually been to Europe.
Why do people fake accents? Why is it always a British accent? Why not Australian or South African or Irish? What in God's name would possess someone to do this? Wouldn't you be worried you'd actually run in to someone who really was from the country that was supposedly your native homeland and get called out? Have you ever known anyone to do something like this?
What is it with all the questions about sex as of late?
DK/DC: What are you craving like mad right now?
I would like some pistachios and cashews, ngl. And a properly made french dip sandwich.
My fiance and I are moving into a giant house owned by my sister, and she is letting us live there rent free for 8 or 9 months (and then she's kicking us out and moving in)! That saves us about $1,000 a month!
We'll be able to save money finally! Wooooo!
