eta: wtf is wrong with you people?
Do you turn your mobile phone (if you have one) off while you are sleeping?
What's your latest discovery (tv, movie, food, book, etc)?
Edit: And why!
Edit2: Okay, maybe something for competition. You can study art in France (northern region, in Brittany) or Buddhism in Kyoto. Which do you pick?
I think it was on some sort of island, but it was definitely in a wooded area. A child was in a hollowed out tree or some sort of hole and there were a bunch of fantasy-like creatures with the kid. I think it's an older movie, maybe based on a book? I can't remember crap about it. THIS IS REALLY BOTHERING ME :(
It is not Nim's Island or The Last Mimzy, both of which I think are too childish for what I'm thinking of, but I think they're familiar. It definitely had fairies or sprites or some sort of little mystical creatures, and maybe talking trees? ARG. Do any of you have any clue what I'm talking about?! Maybe start listing fantasy movies that involve kids and cool animatronics/stuff like that. I have to figure this out :(
PAN'S LABYRINTH. GOT IT. YES! MOVIE TIME!
Link me to one random thing you want/are about to buy/are coveting?
With the success of the Producers and Spamalot, more movies are turning into Broadway-type plays. What movie would you most like to see be turned into a major theatrical production?
What can I add to the kraft to make it more interesting?
What should I do other than sleep?
Do you consider them guilty pleasures or do you legitimately enjoy them?
Can yu show me any creepy Polaroids you've taken?

I'm thinking specifically of the word agnostic- most people use it to mean 'atheism lite', unaware that athiesm vs thiesm is on a completely different spectrum than agnosticism vs gnosticism (For a better explanation of what the meaning is, go here). We all know what people mean when they say 'I'm agnostic', so at what point does that meaning become official (if ever)?
srs, but still non-srs answers plz
has this ever happened to you? what gives
I have a B.A. in English and a B.A in History. If I manage to pass this program, I will have an M.A. in Early Modern European History next year.
My question to you is: What kind of jobs could I get with those degrees?
dk/dc: What is your favorite kind of drink to order at a bar?
I wanted to be a ( Collapse )
Now that I've clearly got your appetite going, look at this menu. What would you order off of it?
I'm going to an orientation for the specific program within the organization I'm interning at. I wore slacks to meet the org's volunteer coordinator two weeks ago, then felt overdressed once I got there. The specific orientation today is for the after-school tutoring program I'll be working with.

Most of my good friends either already live by themselves, or I wouldn't want to live with. Also, you dorm-living-people do not count.
When was the last time you wrote a letter?
When did you last receive a letter?
Do you think it is ever appropriate for teachers to give out their contact information to their students? What about texting with their students? What about contact with students on social networking sites? Do you think teachers should be fired for doing this?
Teachers of TQC: Do you ever give your contact info out to students? Do you ever text with them? Do you ever friend your students on any social networking sites?
Non-teachers of TQC: If you were a teacher would you ever give your contact info to your students? Would you ever text with them? Would you ever friend any of them on a social networking site?

would it be a good idea for me to get anti-anxiety meds before i start my field experience?
I can see the laptop on the desktop, but not the other way around. I've googled a lot and tried everything suggested (updating drivers, password protecting the laptop, etc.)
How can I fix this?
I'd like to be able to print without sending everything to the other computer. Bah.
Don't know/don't care/doesn't apply to you: how responsible are you with money? Do you have a savings?
ETA: Just in case someone else has this problem and finds this, I fixed it by switching the network on windows 7 from home to work which can be done in Network and Sharing under the Control Panel. Also by making sure my other computer didn't go into standby lol.

I've got a couple.
I was on my way to Orlando, Florida from New York JFK many years ago. It's about 3 hours. Within the first 15 minutes of the flight there was heavy turbulence from a storm cell we clearly failed to avoid. 1 hour into the flight, the baby behind me vomited quite forcefully. I was actually impressed! Surely he had a future in firefighting. What I was not impressed with is that the vomit made it between the seats and onto my arm. :C I didn't want to say anything because clearly mom and dad had problems of their own. Also, I didn't want to embarrass them. I got up later and tried to wash it out. I smelled like formula barf for the rest of the ride. I hate the smell of formula even before it's digested soooo...
The second time I was riding a puddle jump Cessna from Boston Logan to Nantucket (ACK). I'm a frequent flier, but this trip was so nerve-wracking that I was clinging to my friend's jacket and trying not to crap my pants. We would be carried up by a chunk of air, then dropped about 50 feet or so. In a 9 seater plane you can really feel that! When we were a few hundred feet from the runway, I thought we were in the clear. Well the plane had one more upsetting trick for us. Right before we landed, we hit a crosswind so bad it knocked the small plane nearly completely horizontal. Like, sky out of one window, asphalt on the other. Luckily the pilots kick ass (mostly retired Navy), so we made it. I took the boat back for the return trip. O_O
What is the definition of a 'cult'?
-Inspired buy the coco I am watching about the westboro church.
EDIT: I didnt mean the dictionary meaning...
Fine ok obviously this is screwed and I did not ask the right question.
What is your fav video game movie?
I saw a young woman crying once, and my friend noticed it, too, and I feel bad for not having at least asked if she was okay. I was with several friends and we were sort of on a mission, and the opportunity passed me by.
Edit: If you overtake them you are also avoiding accident.
When you have a life issue do you ask tqc what you should do?
Do you make the question ambiguous?
Has anyone done the Couch to 5k program?
How did that work out for you?
Did you lose any weight?
I just started today and it was already harder than I thought, but I felt great when I was done!
i have shit i need to do tonight but i also feel like i should watch it idk. i could just stream it and have it on in the background but i'm pretty sure i would end up just spacing out and missing the whole thing as happens every time i attempt to watch football (i can pay attention when it's with a group of enthusiastic people, though).
I keep seeing Facebook statuses and wall posts that are cloyingly intense ("on the phone with the love of my life!!! love you hannah! 01.04.11 <3"), only for the relationship to end a few days later, only for the same people to have the same/similar statuses about a new boy/girlfriend a week later. My brain is just incapable of wrapping around these very public, very intense displays for may-fly-length romances.
if yes, what would you change? what wouldn't you change? what events would you try to prevent from occuring or to make sure they happen?
Is it a travesty to wear leggings with a dress and some black non-Ugg but non-leather boots to school?
I see other teachers wearing similar, but I'm semi-chub and don't really have a secure job. haha
Any suggestions for something comfortable to wear instead?

If you're realllllly hungry, but dinner probably won't be for another hour or two, do you eat something or just wait it out? If you do eat, what do you have?
Should I go out and buy myself some Ben and Jerry's and eat my emotions or should I take a nap?
Also, is it more important to write essays with an eye towards what the person grading you is looking for or is it more important to write an essay that you are proud of?
dk/dc: Is it snowing where you live right now?
Especially from THIS (tqc_update) about claystarling and our pimping endeavour (tl;dr, someone just called him and he's going on a date).
I'm also laughing at claystarling 's use of "QWOPing" as a verb to describe the method used to avoid falling down stairs when you start to stumble.
Will you tell me a funny story? From recently or a while ago?
My SO and his roommate really wanted me to play, so last night I tried it for the first time and enjoyed myself quite a lot. So now I am all excited about my potential new-found hobby and would sort of like to talk about it.
SO, WoW players, do you have any awesome tips for someone starting out with no clue what she's doing?
Or would you like to share fun stories or your latest accomplishments or tell me about your characters or anything?!
Brought to you by me meeting up with a married guy today (just as friends) and he's pretty much the cat's pajamas. And he's married. Ugh.
Favorite published photo, if you have one?
How bad do you have to feel before you call in?

I never wore my retainer and now my teeth have a few gaps and the top and bottom are no longer perfectly lined up. I want to get braces again to refix these things but ugh I don't know if the pain and annoyance of braces would be worth it.

I'm sick from something, and I'm not sure whether it's from bad food or an illness since I've had neither before, or if it's from stress.
Here's what's going on. Went back to school today after a very bad break (car wreck, sick brother, dad visit, brother overdosing), and ate lunch at school. I had a salad, some lemon portobello rice, an apple, and some yellow cake. The rice was very oily and makes me sick to think about it thought it tasted alright at the time.
I ate lunch around 2, and got done with class around 5:30 and came home. I've been vomiting the last hour and a half, and I never vomit. What's wrong with me?
My boy is headed up to the grocery store, and I have to figure out what I can eat for dinner that will go straight in the stove.
Also, no microwave.
I am thinking bagel bites, because that sounds delicious, BUT I also want some sort of veggie/something healthyish to go with it.
Question-AT your typical Publix is there something in like the frozen section that is healthyish that I can stick straight in the oven? I only have a flat pan to cook on.
Also, I have no fridge either so I don't want to get fresh veggies that will just go bad plus condiments that would go bad.
Everything that is coming to mind is those bags you put in the microwave. But I have no microwave and I will not be at the store to look.

I have to go to a funeral on Friday. Friends of the family, I know the parents of the individual better then the individual themselves. I'm there as moral support for both his and my parents, as everyone is extremely upset...he committed suicide.
I've never been to a funeral. Does anyone have suggestions for what I can say to his parents, his siblings? "I'm so sorry for your loss" is pretty obvious, but I know they are going to be hearing it alot and, well I'm honestly just not sure what to do/say.
Don't know/can't answer, what was the last dramatic experience you had?
How far away do your friends live from you?
If you had to wake up at 5 or 5:30- What time would you go to sleep?

Should I notify my neighbors about the party in advance?
Would you move in with your SO before you've told them that you love them?
If you have, how did you like it?
I'm sure if won't make me much but it sounds like something I'd enjoy and get a little pocket money from.
Inpsired by the fact that I cannot form an opinion of him, aside from the fact he is downright annoying.

To those who have a tattoo: If you procrastinated about getting a tattoo what made you decide to finally go ahead and do it?
also, is it just me or is TQC being especially awesome tonight?
DK/DC would you draw what you want the most right now and post it? MS paint is extra points.

Will you tell me about some contradictions within yourself?
For example, I don't want kids, have never wanted to have kids, but when I see a hot man around kids my ovaries explode.
What brands of foundation and powder do you use for your regular make up needs? I'm thinking specifically brands that would be found at a drug store--designer brands are great for special occasions and all but I'm looking for something that's more realistic for a student like myself to buy on the regs.
Right now I'm using liquid clean by Covergirl, which has been working out fine for me, but in general I think it's not very good with covering up dark circles, which is my major complexion issue. In order to cover them I have to generally use a lot, which makes me look overly made up, which I definitely want to avoid. The powder I use is from Rimmel and it's generally okay, I suppose, but I'm interested to see if anyone has any better powder's they'd recommend.
My goal as far as regular make up is concerned is to look as natural as possible while covering my nasty eye circles.
Also if anyone can recommend a cream or something that has worked really well in reducing the darkness of eye circles that would be fab as well.
Gracias in advance!
I just spoke to someone who thinks this and I'd never heard of it before. Do you know anyone who else who has this view?

I've recently taken up outdoor running in short intervals. I was running on the tredmil forever but it is so very different (and much easier) than running outside. Since I want to run with my fiance (who does marathons) I need to learn how to run outside. I've been running alone under the cover of night! lololol!
Last summer some guy yelled something at me and I gave it up until now. omg how embarrassing (and rude)!
