How tired are you on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the most)?
Why am I still awake??
Someone says "don't tell anyone, but...". I know it depends on what it is and yadda yadda but generally speaking, do you tell anyone?
Do you even make an effort to not spread the secret?
Barring people that have something against you and would intentionally spread a secret about you, who would be the LAST person you would give sensitive information to, if you didn't want a lot of people to know?
What do you like to eat for breakfast, whether you're working out or not?
What was the last thing you got into a debate about?
I debated about which was the trashier show between Jersey Shore and Teen Mom with my ex who I hadn't spoken with in almost two years tonight. IDONTEVENKNOW. I was completely sober. I don't want to talk about it. ETA: It was lighthearted and a good time. No friendships were harmed in the making of this debate.
( Collapse )
Who did it better?
Who was the last person you spoiled? (even if it was yourself?) How did spoil them/what with? Was it gratifying?
Dancing, singing, drawing, writing, etc.
What would one wear to an interview for Hot Topic? I feel like going conservative with pale nailpolish, smooth hair, and covering my tattoos would actually be detrimental.
"She adopted he and his brother Buzz about a year ago."
Is the 'he' grammatically wrong?
Okay, okay, I admit defeat. I was wrong. Thanks guys!
dk/dk I've watched the first 2 episodes of Community. I didn't really like it. Should I give the show another chance and watch a few more episodes?
i have horrible horrible pain coming from one of my teeth, which i believe has an abscess. i went to the dentist a few days ago and they said they didn't need to do a root canal so they just cleaned out the decayed part of the tooth and gave me a metal filling. i think they were wrong because it still hurts, even worse than before in fact, and my jaw hurts, my ear hurts, i have a headache almost all the time, and the lymph node on that side of my neck is a little swollen. i probably won't be able to get in for another week so what can i do in the meantime to reduce the pain/swelling, if anything? besides taking lots of ibuprofen (which i don't want to do, but it's all that's helping).
do you think that sounds like an infection?
also, how does one go about switching dentists? should i call my insurance co for recommendations or look for doctors online or what? and how can i know that i'm going to a highly reputable one? i'm not happy with my current dentist at all.
dk/dc: how are your teeth? any problems? how often do you go to the dentist?
I'm going snowboarding for the first time with friends in Mammoth next weekend. I've never snowboarded before, but have always wanted to and am taking this opportunity to try it out. I'm obviously renting equipment, but what I want to know is, what kind of equipment CAN I rent? What do I need to buy? Should I be asking my family to send me gloves and stuff now, so it gets here in time? Or can that be rented too? Pants? What kind of jacket and under-jacket clothing? I'm 100% knowledgeless on this, so any advice helps! Thanks!
Also: what's a hot and creamy/foamy coffee house drink that isn't too harsh on my stomach (either too sweet or too caffienated)?
What brand? How do you like it?
Do you ever wear mascara while wearing your contacts? What kind and how do you like it?
I just switched to Acuvue Oasys on my last check up. I feel like they stay moist longer, which is great. My eyes also feel a little itchy though. I know it is not pink eye, I had that when I was younger. I think it's more of an allergic reaction. I also just started wearing mascara a few months ago too. At first I was using Neutrogena's Clean Lash that says it's safe for contact wearers, but can no longer find it. This was fine. Then I switched to Cover Girl (something in an orange tube, the non-waterproof one). This was fine for a bit up until recently. Any of you had this problem with Acuvue Oasys or the orange tubed Cover Girl?
Folks without a Master's degree who intend to get one: How old are you?
(Basically I love my job but WOULD LIKE TO GET MY MASTER'S ALREADY fffffffff. Please halp.)
I would like to make a big thing of lasagna and bring it over to her family's house, but...I somehow feel that's a rude and imposing thing to do.
I don't know, it's just, when my uncle died, the last thing I wanted to do was cook, but the other last thing I wanted to do was entertain house guests.
I called her and asked if she wanted me to bring over anything, and she kind of said, sadly, "No, no, it's fine."
I don't know guys, I'm feeling so useless and I guess I'm trying to think of something proactive to do.
Should I bring over some lasagna? Should I just give it to her and be like, "Hey, I just wanted to drop this off, I'm not going to stay, I don't want to be a bother, call me if you need anything"? Or should I just leave her and her family alone? Should I call her and tell her I'm bringing some over, or should I just...bring some over?
1. How would you react to meeting someone like this? Would you mention the movie/song/tv show you thought they were named after and gush about how much you loved/hated it? Or just act relaxed?
2. Do you have a famous name? (Even if you weren't named after a famous character but said character appeared after you were born.) How do people react when they find out this is your name? Do you find their reactions irritating? What do you say when someone makes a comment about said famous character and your name?
DK/DC: Do you like the taste of gluten free products?
STILL DK/DC: What is your fav. kind of cheese?
does anyone live in anything cool or unusual like a log cabin or something?
No broccoli, cabbage, mint, apples or more that moderate spice level allowed.
What say you, TQC, What should I make?
I barely talk to him and he makes inappropriate comments all the time, which I could care less about. I'm just wondering what would you have said?
How do you usually respond to inappropriate sexual comments?
How do you deal with someone who is passive aggressive? Say, if someone is angry with you and denies that they are? How would you handle the situation if you see them at school/college/TAFE frequently, or work with them?
What do you do when someone spreads rumours about you (e.g. at church, school, work)? What is the best way of dispelling rumours?
Edited to Add: if the rumour is *really* bad, what would you do to eliminate rumours about yourself? What if the person being passive aggressive was turning people against you (but refused to tell you why they're mad at you)?
what super awesome gadget have you discovered lately? or is there something you planned on purchasing, and when you went to get it, you found something EVEN BETTER?
ETA: It came out or fell out on its own; no worries! Thanks :)
Copy and Paste the text already in the search box, if any.
Which will answer the question... what was the last thing you searched the text of a page for?
coldplay. yellow turned me off of them for years before i decided to give their other stuff a try.
i still hate yellow though.
if not, how would you describe your music taste?
Would you come visit me if I let you stay in my guest cabin for free?
Have you ever bought a sweater from Goodwill, etc. and unraveled it to reuse the yarn? How did it come out?
On a different note, the lady or the tiger?
tqc, I think I'm a little dependent on you.
Is there anything that you forget to clean often when doing your normal cleaning routine?
My best friend has diagnosed herself with depression and many other things. I'm not sure how to make her feel better when everything I suggest, she turns down. Her FB status is always about how depressed she is. She also tried getting disability money so she doesn't have to work, she just doesn't WANT to work. I can't help but feel some what annoyed.
we're in eugene, or (college town) if it makes any difference.
Is there a color you try to avoid?
If so did you say yes or were you weirded out?
If not what do you think about that sort of thing?
If you could be anywhere right now, where would you be?
Me - LiveScribe Smart Pen
Are you currently employed?
Would you consider your employment to be more of a job or a career?
What level of satisfaction do you feel towards your current employment?
If you could do anything in the world for a living, what would you do?
Who are your favorite actors?
Do you donate to any charities?
Which of these revelations could you overlook enough on a first date? Clicking the boxes below says that you can deal with what the person said and could date them. Boxes you don't click say that what was revealed is a dealbreaker
If you are in such a relationship, how's that working out for you?
2. what about for TQC only, rather than just your friends page?
3. if you DO go back to the last entry (on either your friends page or TQC or both), do you ever have a limit where you decide it's too much (maybe if you've been away for a while/not been checking it or something)? and if so, what is that limit?
Or I guess it could be TQCers as long as no names are named.
do you feel loved/admired/blessed when all your facebook friends write "happy birthday" on your wall?
do you ever just miss the days when people actually had to remember birthdays?
do you even care about birthdays? your own, other people's, whatever?
Which is the worse offense?
I just have no idea what I want to sell.
I'm a sucker for those stupid parties, so I need your help.
What the hell type of parties do you like to go to? Pampered chef? Jewelry? Candles?
Should I just cut out the middle man and start making my own stuff? (Then the question is: soap, picture frames, purses, random doodads?)
I keep looking at stuff and nothing seems to be particularly amazing.
No using graphics tablets or whatever, that's cheating. Circle/line tools are ok though.
( Collapse )
(sorry if this has been asked a lot before!)
What kind of beer should I get?
( Collapse )
Edit: tqc update coming with finished product and feedback after we hang them up around campus.
Anyone onboard who's seen this, do you agree with the Australian Classification Board's conclusion that "this film deals with matters of sex in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that it should be refused classification".
...tbh I'm having a hard time seeing the problem; it seems a lot more artistically worthwhile than (e.g.) 9 Songs, for example.
If you've seen it, what did you think?
Why isn’t there a candy bar with pistachios?
So my question is since I know I'm really not 'full', should I keep eating beyond that full feeling? I tried last night and it just felt like I was forcing tons of food when I was just trying to finish a cheese stick.
How do you deal with meds that make you lose your appetite?
How was your experience with your extractions?
thanks for the advice!
What should I get? I'd like to get something that'll help keep me motivated to continue working out. I don't even know where to start looking, I normally don't buy stuff from the iTunes store, and I basically only watch medical mystery type shows, Alton Brown shows, Two Fat Ladies and Scooby Doo cartoons :D
I was thinking maybe two seasons of The Biggest Loser. What are the most motivating/"best" seasons to download?
WHO DOES THIS?
DO YOU DO THIS?
The picture of apple pie in my cookbook has a piece of cheddar cheese on the top. I showed it to my dad and was all, "Wtf, Daddy, who DOES this?" and he was all, "Uhm, yeah, that's how most people eat apple pie," and I was all, "NO."
WTF, TQC? WTF.
There was film inside and I have no idea how old it is or what's on it. I know I used it in 2004 so it can't be any older than that. Will you take a guess as to what's on the film? You'd know as well as I would, I have no clue! I'm going to have it developed to find out (though I accidentally exposed the end when I incorrectly assumed it would be empty).
Is it good? whats it taste like? Sour, sweet, strong?
Are you broke right now?
I don't really have anything to do tonight, but I want to get out of my house. What should I do?
What'd you guys eat today?
I had a ham and egg sandwich with cheddar and swiss for lunch. I made pizza on a Boboli crust for dinner. And for snacks I had a banana, a handful of baby carrots, and a cheesecake cupcake.
Do you have any siblings? Do you like having siblings?
I just have an older brother and I know I'd be a completely different person if I didn't have him in my life.
What would you choose?
Rosie O'Donnel, Gary Busey and girl from the movie 'Precious'.
You have to marry one, have sex with one and kill one.
I got hired at this fucking tutoring job back in March and it's been a miserable experience since the beginning.
( Collapse )
So...TQC...how do I get this girl to sit down and do her homework? How do I discipline her?
I am trying to look for another job, but the only real work experience I have is taking care of aquarium animals and tutoring biology. I have applied to dozens of retail jobs and yet to be called into an interview for any of them.
Do you ever worry about your parents at all?
What's the longest you've been without heat in the winter? How did you cope? (Mom's got a space heater and a dog for tonight.)
OBLIGATORY OFF-TOPIC QUESTION: Favorite winter-weather dessert?
When we came back home, there was a pink baby pacifier in my chair. THERE IS NO BABY HERE AND NEVER HAS BEEN.
Where did the binky come from?
Does this have something to do with the constant thumping from upstairs? (I tell myself it's the cat, even when I'm looking right at her.)
What are your favorite scary movies/stories/videos?
DKDC: What is your favorite painting? Mine is The Scream by Edvard Munch.
Alternately, do you like the IT Crowd? What's your favorite episode? Mine is when they go to the theater with Jen and her date. Or the dinner party episode.
Online, I only had my resume, no cover letter/intro/etc.
Tomorrow when I go to the interview, do I need a cover letter attached to my resume, or am I okay without one?
The position is for a secretary/receptionist of a new company.
My ex-gf, who looks a bit like Anne Hathaway and has that hot nerd/smart girl/slightly psycho thing going for her, has been texting me lately. She wants to go on a vacation.
I'm wary to rekindle at all. In my experience it never works to go back to an ex, and I'm a bit suspicious she is trying to use me because she knows my change in circumstances recently.
Still, it's tempting. She was the only girl I li-- loved.
Give it another go? Ignore her texts?
How much does it need to snow where you live in order for it to be considered a significant amount? I love GA because everything shuts down for a dusting, lol.
Alternatively, what was the reason for your last doctor visit?
Alternative to the alternative, if my health insurance covers Mirena, it probably covers Paraguard too, right? It wasn't on the list of covered "contraceptive drugs," but it's not a drug of any kind so I don't even know where to look for it. (I know I need to call them to ask, and I intend to do that, but it's probably covered, right?)
If I leave before completing a whole year, I don't know what will happen with my financial aid. They might start charging and I know there's no way I could afford it, but if I stay here there is a very good chance I will just have a mental breakdown much bigger than the ones I have been having recently. And I don't want to imagine.
What would you do, TQC?
Do you have any similar stories with good outcomes?
Srs only, please. I have no sense of humor in this state.
What was your favorite song released in 2010?
Are there any similar forms of media that you're looking forward to in 2011?
If not, how do your slice your cheese?
eta: It's so weird to me how many people use a knife; I think you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone in my country (or those around it) that DON'T own and use one of those slicers. Bizarre!
DK/DC - my cars stuck in the driveway (snow drifts) any tips? Or should I just call in sick to work in the morning?
If that makes sense.
For example, I love the name Casper but I'd be hesitant to name a kid that because people might be like "THE FRIENDLY GHOST!" all the time.
2. What is your favourite Jane Austen novel? Why?
3. What Hogwarts House would you be in?
4. Do you tend to get fixated on things? Like, songs, or movies or books, etc. Do you get obsessed with them?
Do you think these terms mean the same thing?
What is your favorite food to eat when you're sick?
What are your favorite guilty pleasure songs now?
What happened? How did you get rid of them? Etc, etc.
I'm only wondering because I've just now heard of them being a problem, and apparently the city I live in has one of the highest bedbug rates anywhere.
Dk/Dc: Have you ever had Del Taco?
What about In n Out?
What's a really good, regional fast food eatery in your area?
If they got tested and it came back negative but you know they've fucked a lot of people in the past 3 months so they might still have it but it just didn't show up on the test yet, what would you do?
for me it was Bowser, Ganondorf, and Darth Vador.
Have you any of you had this? Maybe with PMS?
I just started a new birth control a week ago and my last period started Dec. 29th.
I want to start painting. I used to draw a lot and was pretty good, but then other things in life took precedence and since then I haven't done much in the way of 'fine art'. I'd like to pick up painting, but I don't even know where to start in terms of supplies, etc.
So...how do I start?
It arrived to my dorm two days ago, and I arrived today. I got it plugged as the instruction manual said and the smell got worse and worse, so I decided to unplug it.
I'm going to call customer service tomorrow, but I'd like to know:
What can be causing this?
Can I fix it?
Is it normal?
Should I get it out of my room?
Are you pursuing that currently?
My dream is to have my own publishing company.
How does one get into that field?
dk/dc: what do you do when you can't fall asleep?
Do you believe in magic?
How do you define magic?
and/or your favourite quotation.
or are you playing any other fun video games right now?
ETA: I guess I should have mentioned that I only have a xbox 360 lol, so no access to previous FF games. The general consensus seems to be that XIII isn't the best :/ Thanks!
