I got curious as to the individual songs so I looked them up. Mix 2 is most likely from 1998. Mix 4 is 1999.
1998 was a great year for music, do you agree?
Yes, I'm serious. That's how far behind I am.
Also, I haven't seen any of the new mostly-computer-animated movies yet. The most recent one I saw all the way through was Wall-E, and then just the other week, I saw the first half-hour of Avatar.
TQC. WILL YOU BRING ME UP TO SPEED? WHICH MOVIES IN THESE GENRES (epic sci-fi/fantasy/adventure and/or computer animation) DO I NEED TO SEE NOW?!?!?!? I have all tonight, tomorrow and the next day that I want to fill with movies, so please. Help me out, you guys. <3
If you're not into any of those types of movies, will you suggest other recent movies that you think I might like (come on, all y'all know me pretty well)?
EDIT Or will you tell me about recent movies that you liked? COME ON TQC WHERE ARE YOU GUYS? IS MY QUESTION TOO BORING? >:/
do you coast to save petrol?
do you know that this allegedly doesn't save any petrol?
do you find this a hard pill to swallow?
Assume that you were out of town or had fallen asleep somewhere else in the house and did not require use of it.
If you learned how to do it, how long would it take for you to forget to be able to do it?
Bonus: Anyone have good driver's ed stories? I failed twice. They made me sit on a phonebook :/.
I am trying but I have nobody to talk to about it or do word wars or anything like that, so it's becoming really hard to do. I'm hoping someone here is doing it so I have someone to talk to about it as it happens. I really sort of care about the story I'm doing this year, and I want it to be the first one I finish.
srs answers welcome, non-srs answers encouraged.
(The only person I know with veins like this on their feet is my mom and she doesn't have any tattoos)
Can I get a tattoo over an area with a stretch mark?
(I've heard yes and no)
Where was your most painful tattoo?
(On the left side of my lower back. Part of it went over my spine and all I could feel was my spine vibrating and it hurt like a mother fucker)
How do I get those ads on my blog and get paid for it? Do I have to have my own web address like they do? I want to use Blogger and AdSense but I want to post a lot of public domain pictures at once in different posts of of celebrities and cartoons and stuff (the kind of shit I find online or happen to take myself that I make sure I can use). I have my own comics, writing, and other ideas for original content but I wanted to start start real minimally with collected pictures, and light content to lower suck factor -- therefore, not sure if AdSense will work because of too many pictures at once (even comics I drew could be counted as pictures by them now that I think about it).
Please and thank you!
I just had a music video give me a bittersweet reminder of the past.
For ex: My family say keeping conkers around the house keeps spiders out, my friends family say keeping something gold in your wallet makes you lucky...
My favourite films are Wall-E & the IceAge trilogy atm (as a break from my usual horrors), what other films might I like? (I do not like the Toy Story triology.)
Am I weird?
How often do you eat non-breakfast food for breakfast?
Or if this helps, what would you do?
what about eating mints/chewing mint gum?
Alternatively, what's on your to-do list? Today or long-term or whatever. I have a shit-ton of paperwork to do and I need to move like 12 filing cabinets of files around, hah.
Alternative to the alternative, what is your favorite guilty pleasure TV show? Brought to you by me being randomly sad that ABC Family doesn't play 7th Heaven re-runs anymore. :C
My biggest problem with this is that I realize I'm no better than my dad and my sister. They both make horribly racist jokes and generalizations and turn around and say "I'm not racist". For instance, my sister just started watching Heroes and when I asked her which episode she was on, she said "The one where that dude went back to Chinkyland." I corrected her with the correct name: Japan. "That's still Chinkyland, dude." Or when I told her that I ate at a Vietnamese restaurant the other day her first reaction was "Ew." It was a nice place but the food made me kind of sick and she was like "That's what you get for eating Thai food." I corrected her and she was like "Thai, Vietnam, same fucking thing."
I feel like I can't confront her about it because the first thing she will say is that I used to laugh at those jokes and I call them chinks and beaners too. Now that I've thought about what I've said in the past, I realize that this needs to stop. Both from her, me, and my dad. How can I confront her about this?
tl;dr: I'm ready to stop sounding like a racist bitch and I want my family to stop too but don't know how to confront them.
ETA: Please stop telling me I need to stop using those words before I can chastize them. I've already stopped. Is there like a waiting period I need to get in before I can tell other people to stop or something? Jesus.
So far, the interaction I've had with them hasn't been overly suspect, other than having no real idea who they are and I don't remember applying for anything through them.
New question: What woke YOU up today?
currently i pay around $116 per month for my blackberry curve. it has 400 daytime/evening minutes, evening after 7 and weekends free
internet access and bbm and all that. unlimited text. caller id, answering machine, so on etc
i'm on a 3 year contract, with about 18 months left on it.
i used it a lot for my other job i had, but i'm not currently at that job anymore, so my usage had gone done significantly.
also i recently broke up with my ex, and all his numbers, friends, family are on my phone. (i know i could delete them, but its hard for me) not to mention the netowork is not that great, i always have dropped calls etc.
i'm thinking either to get another phone with a significantly cheaper plan, with less minutes possibly. whatever the plan will be, it'll be less than $116. and keep my phone for the rest of the 18 months but change my plan from 116, to the bare minimum plan my provider has. instead of paying the ridiculous fee of bailing on my contract. (which is like 400-500 dollars)
is this dumb? should i just suck it up and stick out my current phone contract?
Has anyone done the Couch to 5k program? Did it help you lose weight? I'm thinking of trying it just to get fit and toned.
Are you buying anything?
Do you buy/sell anything for your job?
Should I go shopping today?
Cons: I went the other day, spending money I dont really need to spend, time spent out of bed doing other things
Pros: A day with my mum (im going back to uni soon). I didnt see many shops the other day, I have christmas money.
obvious example, in case i'm wording this horribly: jackalope.
- Has anyone read Free Food for Millionaires by Min Jee Lee? Is it worth buying/reading?
- Should I buy Free Food for Millionaires or Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto instead?
- Which of these book combinations should I buy?
If so, how is it banking with a bank that doesn't have many physical locations? Are making deposits easy and fast? If you send in a check to be deposited, how long does it take to be deposited and do they send you the envelopes to do so? Any negatives at all with them?
And I'm assuming you also get checks and a debit card (I'll be opening a checking account) that can be used at anytime, and also get a routing and account number so that I can do direct deposits in the if I want to as well.
If you celebrate by the ortho calendar, do you also celebrate on the 25th December?

Do you have any fitness goals for this year?
[Edit: Argh there doesn't seem to be ANY exercise communities that haven't been taken over by spam bots.]
Have you heard anyone call their SO something that was awesome? Share?
My SO really wants me to call him søde (translate it means sweet), and he calls me pretty.
I have a friend who call his SO Bubbles, which I think is awesome. I cant help but think that if my SO and I break up he will call the next girl pretty also, because it's very generic.
it's like they all have to take turns getting a crack in. but the girls never do it. why? why is it always the guys giving me a hard time with their bad financial jokes? do girls just have better taste in jokes? should i order a pizza just to get some soda? or should i just suck it up and walk 5 minutes to the corner store?
I currently have Surpass Hosting, but I'm not really happy with the whole payment thing.
I ~believe I saw you could buy hosting for 13.99 a year.
I love the idea of paying that little, and not working about it for the rest of the year! :P
Any ideas? What hosting would you recommend?
Do any of you take Yaz birth control? My doctor decided to put me on bc today to regulate my periods.. did you gain weight?
obscure meaning local interest, non-headline type stuff.
Also, are there different sites to watch shows like Skins (not the MTV one, the original show) and Misfits?
ETA: Can you recommend any shows or movies? There's no cable at my parents house, and basic TV in the middle of the day consists of Judge Judy. My laptop is currently my saving grace. I don't care much about genres, just something interesting!
is it legitimate?
Is that a really long time to you, or not really?
What are some things like this you've noticed?
Also, how do the manufacturers get away with this? Wouldn't it be considered false advertisement?

there was a BIIIIIIIIG fire in a chemical Industrial plant (sorry if this isn't the correct word, hope you understand me) about 50 km / 30 miles away..
would you panic?
There hasn't been any alarms in our city but everyone seems to panic. I just figure "if it's really THAT bad, the journalists wouldn't just stand there without any protection, telling about how chemical everything in this Plant was/is..?
DK/DC: Best book you've read lately? Movie you've seen? Song or artist you've listened to?
my mother was on cymbalta 30mg for 2 weeks
she is going to stop taking them. and her doctor said that "she should be fine" stopping cold turkey.
so this is what she is doing. today is her first day off of them.
is this the right thing to do? i have heard horror stories about getting off meds like this, and i want to be sure this is okay to do, and it won't make her other illnesses worse. (which i have a feeling it will.
does anyone else have experience with cymbalta?
ETA: Like post apocalyptic America and stuff like that genre. Fascist governments and horrible atrocities to struggle through - that kind of stuff.

Have you ever had surgery? What did you have done? What was your recovery like?
I haven't had much as far as symptoms of anything, a couple days where I was achy and lethargic, a couple days with wicked migraines, a couple days of kidney and abdomen pain, and a couple days where my eyes felt like someone was stabbing them. The only constant thing is I've been is cold most of the time.
What is wrong with me, Dr. TQC? Serious and non appreciated.
Serious though, should I call my doctor? I know my immune system is crap, but I'm really starting to think this is not normal.
What are you reading? What's it about?
Can you recommend a great book - perhaps something you just read, or maybe an old favourite?
I tend to hate any fiction that is "lolol girl meets guy, girl gets job, GIRL MUST CHOOSE OVER GUY AND JOB" so don't even try it. I've hear 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is good, but I'm also open to any biographies or memoirs. Also, it is not imperative that I find a book, so really just discuss anything book related, tyvm :)
My birthday was the other day and my aunt and uncle want to know what to get me. At first I didn't know what to tell them but then I thought a drawing tablet would be really cool. I don't know much about them though so I was wondering if any artists or just anybody who knows about tablets could recommend a certain brand to me or tell me what to look for. I heard Wacom tablets are pretty good but that all I have to go on right now. Help?
what is your favorite kind of hummus?
what is your favorite kind of salad dressing?
