Is there an available drink out there that tastes like Red Bull but does not have the caffeine/energy drink stuff in it? I am seriously addicted but I know it's horribly bad (and expensive) for me to drink several cans a day. I've been trying different sparkling waters from Walmart/Giant Eagle but I haven't found anything that has that really cold zing that isn't really fruity.
will you show me a picture of something you made yourself?
I'm going home for spring break tomorrow (yay!). My mom will be picking me (& my brother) up from the airport in the evening & taking me home, but I want to spend the night with my boyfriend, who lives nearby (we're long-distance, it sucks, blah blah). If my mom tries to be all "it's your first night home, spend time with you family," what should I tell her?
The more non-srs the better.
edit: I will have plenty of time with my family over the next two weeks; I'm not trying to be a brat & ditch them.
Will you please use this post to discuss anything you like? Show us some pictures, youtube embeds, news from your day etc.
TQC, I usually have a rehearsal on Tuesday nights but not tonight because too many people are on spring break (so we just don't schedule one for this week). I get off work when it's still light (4:30). What should I do with my free time? It's not super-free time, I still have to spend most of it at home with the fam, but I do suddenly have flexible scheduling.
A. Go straight to the gym, so I can have tomorrow night free to go to yoga instead which I almost never get to do.
B. Come home and practice my instrument, since I should be practicing even if we're off.
C. Go for a long walk because it's less-wintry here (like 45 degs F).

What are your thoughts about cultural appropriation? Where is the line drawn between appropriation and appreciation? Does there have to be profit involved?
Obviously if the group who is having their culture used says it's wrong, then it's wrong, but what about when the line isn't as clear?
Do you like to take lunch earlier or later in the day?
I like to take it later, because then it feels like I have less time to work until the day is over with.

Will you post funny .gifs/pictures here?
Alternatively, what's made you LOL recently?
I was looking through the latest Rebecca Black post on ONTD and OMG those .gifs I'm dying.
1. I have a Bissell vacuum with a pet erasing "Turbo Brush" attachment (not the one with the rubber end). The brush doesn't spin anymore, therefore no cat hair is being brushed up from the carpet. I've taken it apart and cleaned it all out, everything seems to be functioning fine inside but it still doesn't spin. Anyone have this vacuum/problem, and have a solution? I've googled several times with no luck. :(

Do you need to dress proffessional for turning in a resume with a temp agency?
ETA: Would a short sleeve purple button-up (but unbuttoned), black spaghetti strap top, and black pants (but not slacks) work?
How do you handle your personal finances? How far out does your planning go? Do you stick with those plans, or make adjustments constantly? Do you use personal finance software to track your income/spending?
I've been trying to wrap my head around our budgetary plans for a while now and the best we have going is the touchy-feely method. This results in the bills getting paid, but I have no idea where all the cash is going. TQC, a little help please?

I have the night off and all to myself!
1. Go for a drive by myself
2. Stay home and watch movies an knit and do crafty stuff maybe
3. Well really there's not that much to do in this town alone so my only other option is take myself to the movies but it's cheap tuesday so it'll be full of teens and such.
4. Obsessively refresh facebook until i get the opportunity to invite myself over someone's house
Do you ever take yourself out on a self-date? I would totally take myself to the movies if there was something amazing on.

I just got a post on my facebook wall from a girl in one of my seminars saying:
hi I missed the language study seminar and i just got an email about groups is there any chance I can get in on yours if you have one
The thing is, I do already have a group with a couple of my friends that do the course - but we have the maximum number of people in it already. The number's not flexible, either. I just feel bad because whilst I don't know this girl a great deal (we once had to do a presentation together - we don't really see each other outside of the one module) I'm pretty sure she doesn't really know anyone else in our class.
What should I do / tell her?
DK/DC how tidy is your room right now?

When people include their typing speed on their resume, how do they know their typing speed? Would finding one of those things online that calculates your typing speed and putting the number down count?
idk I know I can type well, quickly, and the job I'm thinking of applying for has WPM requirement, but I don't know how to put in that I meet the requirement. (I'm not sure if they'd accepts cover letters)
oh wait, I don't have any formal office experience, so I shouldn't even bother applying y/y?
Okay. Somebody else has been playing Super Mario on his Wii. I have that game too, so my Wii has its own save file. Can we take his save file, save it to an SD card, plug it into my Wii, and then save his file again after we've played without changing my saved game? How would this work?
I am really, really, really embarrassed to be asking this. I am very technologically stupid, and I have looked it up on google. I found lots of instructions for this and that, esp on the Nintendo website itself, but I'm still fuzzy on my actual question.
I cancelled Netflix because I never watched it. But I'm heading to a friend's house for a long weekend and I want to get a movie she doesn't have. If I sign up again and order it tonight, will it get to my house by Friday?
You and your SO are currently in an LDR. You see him/her 3-4 times a year. You suspect he/she has a FB/FWB "over there".
How do you feel about that? What do you do?
I got a new phone. It will probably be considered old in a few months, but yay! What kind of phone do you have and what do you like about it?
Don't you hate that adjustment period of figuring out your new device?
I'm going to Panama City, Florida this weekend to hang out with a new friend and her husband and all their friends in their freaking BEACH HOUSE. :D
I just moved here (Alabama, that is, not Florida) from California about a month ago. I'm an aquarium biologist and SCUBA certified, so many people have told me I should go diving while down in Florida. The only day I can do it is Saturday, since I get there on Friday and leave on Sunday.
The thing is, I'm not a particularly huge fan of SCUBA diving. But I DO need to get better at it, since it's relevant to my career.
But I'd much rather spend my day with my new friends. I'd also like to spend my Friday night there getting stupid drunk, but I won't be able to do that if I go diving since diving while hungover is just a recipe for disaster.
I also feel like it would be rude to ditch my new friends for most of the day, since the dive trip would start at around 8 and I probably wouldn't get back until...like, 1.
So what would you do in this particular situation, TQC? Go diving or hang out with new friends?
Have you ever messed around with a Ouija board? Did anything happen?
Do you have a glamor/personalized license plate? What does it say?

Do you think it's a privacy issue to have your birthday out there on the internet? Are you public about it on your livejournal? Do you use your real name on your livejournal? City you live in?
generally speaking what are you private/not private about online?
1. Girls, what kind of hairstyles do you find most attractive on girls? Do you have this hairstyle for yourself? For instance, if you tend to find girls with short, pixie cuts attractive (think Emma Watson), do you yourself have this haircut?
2. Do you think you're hotter than your significant other's ex(es)?
3. Would you judge a girl who is 28 years old but dresses like she's 12-15, considering that she has a petite body?
Would you tell me a story about difficult co-workers? And how you deal with them?
I feel so stupid...but I have a co-worker who completely ignores me. As in won't even acknowledge the fact that I'm speaking in a meeting, will greet everyone then walk by my office silently, ask other people to walk to "x" meeting and when it's pointed out I'm going, she'll walk away. I feel like this is a personal failure and I'm being stupid for being this upset, but it's really upsetting! I know I'm not alone in co-worker drama, come on, spill!
I ate too much pizza and drank too much water and puked while takign a shower earlier. I thought it all rinsed away but it's spattered all over the floor. Best way to clean it up so I don't get sick at seeing this again?
Glee fans- HOW ARE YOU FEELING RIGHT NOW?
Would you go to your friend's birthday party if it was at a bar out of the way? Like 30 minutes down the highway.
I really want to do it at the gay bar I've been going to because my drag friends perform there but I don't know if people will be willing to make the hike. I guess I'll find out.

What funny things do your pets do?
My cat has learned to make a SHITLOAD OF NOISE by catching the screen door in his claw with one paw, while holding onto the door with the other, and then flinging the screen against the glass. He does it from outside and he looks like a character in a scary movie trying to get away from a bad guy! omg it cracks me up, but efff it is noisy.

So I've always loved film... probably more than I do literature, music, or television. I really want to start learning more about it, though, which is why I'm making this post.
Can you please recommend me books about film - history, interesting auto/bios of directors, actors, actresses, etc., Making-of books, film guides... anything related to that. I'm also interested in directing and screen-play writing, so that to haha.
All right. TQC I need some dinner ideas.
Preferably nothing too spicy as while the bf adores spicy food the rest of my family are kinda wimps, myself included.
And nothing that takes too long either.
More notes: there's also a 12 year old. And there's no allergies anywhere.
Have you ever lived with an SO after breaking up with them? (If you were already living together and neither of you wanted to or were able to move out). How did that work out for you?
Leggings + long, but not quite butt-covering, shirt - acceptable? Or will it always look like you forgot to put on a skirt?
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be? ( personality, looks, w/e)
Or are you happy just the way you are?
dk/dc: what's your favorite romantic comedy?
I generally eat my hamburgers upside down, because I heard long ago that the top bun is sturdier than the bottom bun. I have no idea if that's really true or not. TQC, what odd food habits do you have?
do you own white sheets? do you like white bedding in general?
If you've been, how do you feel about Home Goods?
My name would have been Demetrius. Makes me happy to have been born with a vagina.
How much can your best friend get away with?
Mine has gone AWOL for 2 months (he lives a long way away) after he got me in a lot of trouble by not keeping a secret, I had to chase him through his mum and girlfriend to get him to answer his phone, and when I finally got hold of him he was busy when we'd scheduled a call. I'm really starting to get fed up because I need him right now, and i've always been there to listen to his gripes.
