What activities will you be doing on Monday (most likely)?
Brought to you by this conversation that is currently in my News Feed:
J to L: OMG guess what
L to J: What?
J to L: Brittany Murphy died! She had pneumonia or something I think.
ETA: I knew about Brittany Murphy, just to clarify. This question was inspired by my friend.
The guys next door are partying (and we have no other close neighbours within 100m in any direction, but we are in a terrace tht shares one double-brick wall along the length of the house) and I am cleaning my house like a frantic little nerd does :P
If they are still up getting drunk is it ok for me to vaccum at 2am?
They already think we're total weirdos.
Edit: Done and Done! And the dudes next door are still partying hard, none the wiser. Success!
I'm sort of hoping it's a parasite and I get to go on that "Monsters Inside Me" show.
Will you please name some of the stupidest things to do if you're in a horror film?
1. Splitting up. WHEN DOES THIS EVER WORK WELL.
we're debating soccer and football and my winning this debate has somehow boiled down to whether or not i could slide tackle Aaron Rodgers.
Which bath thingy should I use?
Should I use a soap?
What Lush products do you love? How do the massage bars work?
what thought brings you the most joy?
when you are in pain, what do you do to make yourself feel better?
if you are lonely, how do you fix that?
what do you think happens to you after you die?
There is the trailer. Not really safe for work.
It's a film about the French revolution. The characters are portrayed as animals, and the actors are wearing anamatronic(sp) masks. The Marquis, a dog, writes erotic stories and talks to his penis, named Collin. The other characters try to either push or discourage the revolution, based on their interests. It's hard to find with English subtitles, and it's very absurd. You can't take it seriously.
And yet, I love this movie. It's actually deep, well made, and you start to care about the characters even though they're so absurd(the only word to really describe this movie). It deserves to be more well known that it is. I watched expecting to be entertained by how bad it was, but I was entertained for exactly the opposite reason. I wouldn't mind having it on DVD.
As for other lesser known movies, how about the 1979 movie Time After Time? I enjoyed watching HG Wells go after Jack the Ripper.
edited to add less boring question: Would you recommend me an episode of Supernatural to watch after I've written some more of my paper? Or even just a season that is particularly good?
I could deal with these 6-foot snowbanks disappearing immediately. That would work for me.
Do you see anything wrong with people who prefer the company of animals to people?
Do people need people?
My job just swtiched to these money cards for our paychecks and I'm pissed off because there are already problems because they're slow on my Direct Deposit.
Do you have Direct Deposit or still pick up a physical check?
( Collapse )
So, what can and should I do, diet and exercise wise, to lose the weight? Especially in terms of inches? Any herbal appetite suppressants?
are you a perfectionist?
are you a perfectionist in all things? or only specific arenas?
what happens if you are unable for whatever reason to complete something according to your specifications?
do you ever just say "Meh, good enough for me"?
I passed a mail carrier as she crossed the street and she gave me the nicest smile, so I backed up and told her how nice her smile was.
A couple of days before that when I was in the emergency room, the cardiologist was just gorgeous. So I told her so.
What is the last random compliment that you received?
I was at Jiffy Lube and the guy there asked me how I did it. When I indicated confusion, he told me I always seemed so happy.
How well do you know the rules of chess?
Do you enjoy this game? If yes/no, please explain why.
How can chess be applied to life?
How do you improve your chess skills?
What physical ailments are you experiencing right now?
i think it's pretty annoying, but i feel like most people do it without even thinking about it.
Do you like getting cards?
I tried calling but was given this menu of options that didn't include what I'm looking for and would rather not spend the day on the phone with them. I'm just going to go in there since I need to buy a few things anyway, but it's good to have an idea of what to expect.
I posted this on face book and a girl said "I'd keep it long unless you want it to stay short. Long hair is easier to manage here."
How is having long hair easier to manage?
It takes longer to wash, dry and brush. Especially with my hair. I just want something I can wash real quick, comb and then leave it.
( Collapse )
Which do you prefer?
For those of you that have been proposed to before were there any signs that it was going to happen before it happened?
For the record, him proposing means nothing to me (I love him enough that if he never proposed I'd still stay) but I like to over analyze and play with the real-life Game of Life.
What cell phone provider do you have and do you love/hate it?
I have AT&T and I effing hate it and wish I still had Sprint.
Dear dentist TQC, what caused this miraculous healing of my mouth? Should I still get the root canal? Or should I just let it be and forget about it?
(When I went to the dentist he was confused b/c there wasn't any sign of bacteria in my tooth attacking the nerve or anything, therefore requiring a root canal.)
DK;DC: What site do use to listen to music on?
I listen to the SixtyOne.
What can I do? Any good pizza crust recipes I could try?
Do you like pizza? What toppings do you like on it? I like extra cheese with pepperoni, meatballs, ground beef, or chicken.
( Collapse )
Do you think those cats are cute?
what was the last physical altercation you were involved in about?
Bonus points for something cute and less than ~$40. I haven't bought a backpack since middle school. :P
If you were on a jury, would you be able to sentence somebody to the death penalty?
Who are people who are now remembered by doing something stupid?
Was there a consequence for doing it, other than just being remembered as an idiot?
Who are people who are now remembered by doing something great?
Even more specifically, doing something great for others?
The people can be ordinary or famous, doesn't matter.
dk/dc: What was your favorite meal as a child?
I somehow got roped into being a community volunteer person in my neighborhood, where we are trying to establish a new dog park. My first task was to design a basic flyer to help raise awareness, and I finished it last night, but I'm using PhotoFiltre and it doesn't seem to understand that its idea of 8.5x11 inches/21.5x28 cm does not match reality. Or so I'm being told.
Would one of you be so kind as to figure out how to fit this stupid thing to a standard sheet of paper so we can print it? I know we have some graphic designers (and people in general who do this way more often that this one time I have) around here. The file is hizzere: via mediafire and you can use my LJ e-mail to send it back. Please oh please?
In return, I offer you a video of a klepto kitty:

Anyone know how long I need to thaw frozen catfish for? They're labeled "nuggets", but they look more like small fillets. There aren't any directions on the package.
He wants to hang out with me after he gets off work tonight, but that probably won't be until 11 or midnight. I am fine with this. I live with my parents. They probably won't be.
What kind of bold-faced lies can I tell my parents about who I'll be with and where I'm going tonight?
(non-srs answers, plz. In actuality, he'll probably be too tired to hang out after work which bums me out so I need a laugh)
Will you post the trailer/s so we can get hyped up for it as well?
Mine will be in the comments
I have to host our own version of "The Newlywed Game" at a couples' event we are having at RBCC tonight. Can you suggest some questions I can ask the couples?
I am assuming you know how this game works.
Does your answer change if you're in a LDR?
i've been there before but never alone and i just imagine awkwardness will ensue.
I have been diagnosed with severe depression and bipolar (mixed). About 6 months ago, my doctors weaned me off all my medicines and I've been doing really well. But I live in fear that one day I won't be...and so I watch myself constantly. Today was a sucky day. A really, really bad day. And I cried a little. That scared me, and I started thinking 'what if this is the start of your downward spiral'? I tell myself that everyone has bad days, and everyone is allowed to cry and that it's okay. It doesn't mean anything. I had a bad day, I cried, it's over.
So when will I stop being so scared? When will I relax? It's been 6 months and I've been fine.
A not-so-serious, less depressing question:
Have you ever been to the Tilted Kilt? It's like an Irish pub/Hooters. We went last night because my friend Jay came home from Afghanistan. It was not a good experience. I wanted to leave a comment card, but they didn't have any. I did talk to a manager, though. Yes, I was THAT person. But it was really terrible service.
Do you like to mix different kinds of soda together? What kinds? Is there a special name for your mix?
I just mixed Mountain Dew and ginger ale together on a whim. It tastes fantastic.
DK/DC/Soda is gross: what other drinks do you like mixing?
Apple juice and sparkling water taste fantastic together.
Edit: You guys drink some pretty weird shit.
Also, would you use this post to ask a question you've always been scared to ask because you're worried that a dogpile would ensue because of it?
I have been horrible about sticking to my supposedly-strict "no-crushing-on-straight-girls" policy lately, but at least I'm not 100% sure my current girlcrush is 100% straight, soo...
Would it be weird if I like... anonymously asked her on tumblr or somesuch?
DK/DC if you speak a language other than english, are you ever tempted to use a word/phrase from another language while speaking english?
ETA: I'm asking her on Tumblr, because I'm a wuss. How the hell do I word this?
Do you have an exciting trip or vacation planned? Tell us about it!
I've played Mario kart on the Wii and thought it was boooring. I have played one of the Halos once, but I sucked b/c I didn't know what I was doing and no-one in the room would help me. :(
Any particular genre? (Shoot 'em ups, racing, side scrolling, storyline, &c.)
DK;DC: What say you about this song? It's called "The Mariner's Revenge" by the Decemberists.

Well, my questions are:
a. Should I just take out the piercing? (I paid $50 for this, but it was a while ago now.)
b. Or should I REDOUBLE my cleaning efforts because it still can heal?
c. What cleaning methods have worked for you with this kind of piercing?
d. Is sleeping on that side a big no-no? I always end up sleeping on that side! :(
My TV keeps turning off for no apparent reason. The remote will be no where near anyone, so we aren't accidentally pressing the button. Why is it doing this? Is my TV haunted?
Are you bad about snacking when bored? What do you like to snack on?
My dad made me chicken soup because I've been sick, but I've been too sick to eat and now it's gone bad. :( I didn't even get to try any.
dk - If you woke up tomorrow morning able to speak any language you want fluently, which one would it be? Other than your native language(s), obvs
What is a bad memory you have from a past relationship?
When was your last breakup? How long did it take you to pick yourself up from it?
I found out I'm a National Merit Finalist :D
( Collapse )
1.) Walk into the bathroom of the nearest McDonalds and lick a toilet seat?
2.) Sing your national anthem while naked at the Super Bowl? It will be televised.
3.) Cut off your own pinky finger? You can choose the method and I'll cover the medical bills.
4.) Kill a person? You get to choose the target and are exempt from prosecution.
dk/dc/fuck you, pick yourself: what are you looking forward to?
A. Go to a clinic tomorrow (Sunday) and pretty much pay out-of-pocket for the visit, plus the cost of a prescription antibiotic that will probably knock the cough out in a couple of days.
B. Take an antibiotic you were prescribed for something else (that's since resolved itself).
ETA They aren't leftover. It's a whole new round that I never ended up taking. I mean, that you never ended up taking.
Which option would you choose?
1. Linguistic (Word Smart)
2. Logical (Number Smart)
3. Interpersonal (People Smart)
4. Intrapersonal (Myself Smart)
5. Musical (Music Smart)
6. Visual/Spatial (Picture Smart)
7. Naturalistic (Nature Smart)
8. Kinaesthetic (Body Smart)
Which of these do you think suits you most?
