My BFF wants to propose to his lady, and he wants to get the most bang for his buck. She's forbidden him to spend more than $400ish dollars, but he wants the ring to still be "impressive".

I've scoured Ebay for like 2 hours now, and rings are either expensive or super untrustworthy.

Where's another good option?

And I'm pretty aware that this whole business is silly.

What was the last thing that confused you?

I just finished watching The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and I am somewhat confused. I mean I understand what the basic plot was supposed to be, but most of what actually happened in the movie made very little sense and didn't seem to serve much, if any, purpose to the plot. Have you seen this movie? Were you as confused by it as I was or am I just a total moron?

so you are a scientist. you have invented a process which will do one of two things: unlock the secrets to faster than light travel, or obliterate the universe all in one go. you don't know which will happen until you actually utilize your invention.

do you use it?

I asked my doctor this but she is probably the slowest replyer in the world...

I have to give myself a shot every morning. I just grab a bunch of stomach fat and inject 15cc. I always check for air bubbles and ensure there aren't any but I can't shake the fear of "WHAT IF?"

What if I accidently inject a bubble? How bad is that?

With Valentine's Day looming closer and closer in sight, it is time I figure out what to get my boyfriend. 
I am stuck for ideas because we already do so much together. Last Valentine's Day he took me to Paris for the weekend...

Do you still sleep with a stuffed animal, if you did when you were younger? If yes, how old are you? I'm 23 and I still sleep with two of my stuffed animals unless I'm sleeping next to my boyfriend. I probably always will if I have to be in a bed all by myself. I've done it for so long I have this fear that I'm unsafe if I don't.

With music (or ballet or other fine performance art) would you rather technically "perfect" or slightly off key here and there but passionate (and still technically excellent)?
I've been listening to Mario Lanza, Caruso, Gigli, Björling and Corelli etc (who all shit over "The Three Tenors" I might add) and I have to say that while Corelli has the most amazing strength and depth to his voice, Lanza, who is occasionally slightly off pitch, has an element to his singing that is more emotive and therefore more moving imo while Björling is just *wow*. I wish I could hear Caruso as he was supposed to be heard rather than a recording made in the 1920's but even then you can hear the extraordinary quality of his voice.
I suppose I prefer the little flaws with warmth than perfect with none. Russian ballet is another good example- technically flawless but oftentimes cold.

Do you have a favourite performer? Who is it?

What genre do you prefer/listen to the most?
I listen to indie/grunge most of the time

Do you have a favourite piece of classical music?
I like melancholy stuff (Debussy, Satie and so on) but I love Prokofiev's "Dance of the Knights" and adore Motzart (cliched I know) .

What unusual/obscure-ish music do you like?
I really dig the Trio Bulgarka and enjoy that style of music (IDK what the style is called though- Bulgarian folk music I guess)

Nowadays when applying for jobs, there is often a specific section on the application form that asks for referee details. Is it necessary to ask your current manager if it's OK to put his name down on the referee list (with his business e-mail etc), or can you just go ahead and put his details down?

TQC, I only have the use of one of my hands. I also have a job, as a cashier. I get questions all the time from stupid customers asking me what's wrong with my hand. Most of these people are quite rude about it, but even when people ask nicely it hits a nerve. The anticipation of being asked about it is really depressing and making me dread going to work later today.

Does this movie exist or did I dream it?

A few years ago I swear I saw a trailer for this really funny-sounding movie. Here is what I remember:
- It was a horror parody
- It had some stereotypical high school/college kids that rent a cabin somewhere
- It also had these two redneck farmer type people who lived around the cabin
- So these rednecks are trying to introduce themselves when one of the cabin people gets into a horrific accident (can't remember the particulars, but it was gruesome). The rednecks are like "zomg!" and they try to help but when the other renters see it they think that THEY murdered the friend.
- I think it goes on and on like this...just a series of really funny, unfortunately events and these poor farmer/rednecks who are just trying to help keep being in the wrong place at the wrong time (in regards to other gruesome deaths of the cabin renters).
- And the renters are freaking out trying to think of how they can escape these psychotic rednecks (who aren't psychotic at all).

I hope this makes sense because I remember laughing hysterically at the movie trailer and wanting to see it. I've googled and IMDB'd but I can't find ANYTHING, which makes me wonder if I dreamt it. :/

Please help!

How many people live in your house?
How many TVs do you have in your house? DVD/Blu-Ray/VCRs?
How many computers?
Is there anything you have more than one of that people typically only have one of?

5.
6 TVs. 4 DVD players and 2 Xbox 360s which play DVDs. One VCR in the garage which isn't hooked up to anything.
4 Computers.
We have two microwaves in the kitchen. Mostly this is because I live with my dad, stepmother and her kids so when we moved in together there was two of everything. When our washing machine broke down for a while, Dad just went out into the shed and brought in the spare washing machine. We have a spare dining table as well.

Dear TQC - I have to go to a scheduling meeting tonight for work before I start my job tomorrow. I have dress clothes but no dress shoes. I was planning on buying them tomorrow after class, however, I'm curious if you think I should dress up for my scheduling meeting that I have tonight (student job, you don't have to dress up at the monthly meetings regularly unless you're working) more than a nice pair of clean, pressed jeans and a nice top? I always have dressed up for any meeting with any boss I've had, so I don't know if this would be considered okay.

Also, it would be really nice if I didn't have to go shopping today because I'm trying to get ahold of someone to come fix my microwave and oven, neither of which work.

O say TQC

I know it is totally uncool to like YA fiction about ~*vampires*~ and ~*faeries*~ and even less cool to say things like, "but I liked it before it was a thing."  Oh well :-/ I just finished Jacqueline Carey's Terre D'Ange books (all 8 of the published books so far).  I liked those a lot.  I've been through the normal YA fantasy circuit (Francesca Lia Block, JK Rowling, CS Lewis, Tamora Pierce, Philip Pullman, Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, etc). What should I read now? Movie recommendations are also welcome.

 So monday night I went to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMyr2CgOgMw . Im 5'1 and 125 pounds. 

I was in the pit and u front and got hit in the face right below the nose twice ( I had my septum up inside my nose and it cut both sides) and I have massive bruising everywhere.

then wed  I went snowboarding and was on a cat track with no helmet and ended up going super fast backwards and landed the back of my head first, it was so bad people stopped to ask me if I was okay. my head bounced off the snow then my board went over my head.

I feel really quiet and sleepy and my body HURTS. any non narcotic ways to help ease the pain? I have to work and Im up to about 8 ibprofen to get any kinda relief and that just makes my tummy hurt.

anyways to prevent the pain next time besides the obvious wear a helmet?

Have you been in any metal pits lately?

TQC, tomorrow is my 4th and final group interview for resident assistant for the dorms.

I've been going to these interviews in a dress and heels because that's the only formal interview wear I have, but we were hit with a snow storm. I have a 2 hour lecture tomorrow and then 15 minutes later have my interview, but it's in a separate building and a reasonable walk through a lot of snow and it'll be cold, obviously.

I don't own dress pants. I do own black skinnies (these). I could pair that with a sweater and switch to heels when I get to the interview, but I'm scared it's not formal enough.

Should I just wear that, or tough it up and wear a dress like I have been doing?

How often do you edit or change your lj profile?
I seem to do it once every 2 years or so, or after I've been away from lj for a significant period of time.



Also, what are your favorite apps for iphone/ipod/ipad?
My iphone recently broke and got everything wiped off it, so I need to re-add everything, including apps

Also... do you have a favorite non-lj blog? (Is your lj a blog? hmm.)
My favorites are http://www.passittobulis.com which is a Vancouver Canucks hockey blog. They are freaking hilarious. As well as http://www.jasminestarblog.com which is a wedding photographer's blog. GORGEOUS pictures. Plus she's adorable and really funny.

My mom is all angry I won't stop talking and making noise whilst she watches The Office. I posit that I am drunk and I was drunk when she got here and she can't sit in a room with a drunk person and expect silence. Who is right here?
