Edit: Without looking it up.
TQC, do you sunburn easily? If you do, doesn't it suck?
What happened to it?
It's 4:10 am, I have to be up for university at 7:30.
Should I go to bed or stay up for the next three hours?
Should I go to work today, TQC? I don't feel well -- I think I caught what everyone else in the office has had -- and I haven't missed for a long while but I'm afraid my boss will jump on ME (because I know for a fact a girl that works in my unit and does the same job I do is missing for a frivolous reason, and that will make him mad at whoever is convenient to lash out at).
The vet still has their automated answering service up even though they told me to drop her off between 8 and 9 AM. I need to leave soon since I need to be at work at 9 AM. Should I still take her? Wait and just tell them to reschedule?
OK screw the embedded video. Click the link.
HORRIBLY SCARY ROLLERCOASTER. What sick monkey invented this?
Are you an adrenaline junky? What's your favorite roller coaster or amusement ride? I love Manta at SeaWorld.
My mom has shingles really bad and she's in a world of pain right now. She says the biggest problem is that she keeps getting spasms along that nerve. Is there anything she can do to help with the pain other than take ibuprofen (which she's doing now but she's still in a lot of pain)?
What are your feelings on milestone birthdays in the workplace and the path of least resistance through them?
I already put my name on my computer and my spider's name on her cage. What should I do next?
I want to say something but I'm wondering if it's just dumb to complain.
DK/DC: How grumpy do you get if your sleep gets cut way short?
Also, do you prefer flour or corn tortillas?

a 40 year old female body builder "came across" my facebook page and propositioned me for sex. i look like i'm barely 18.. no joke.
"No sorry we dont know each other but came across your page and think you are hot and beautiful and I soo would be with you Mmmmm.Im not saying that in a freaky weird way but Im very bi and just got out of a 3 year relattionship with this guy I fell in love with and he broke my heart lets just sayyy and I miss being with women and need to have fun again now & meet new people. Are u bi too? I sure hope sooo and I hope we could meet up and hang out & stuff if you want .Im sooo down u have no idea."
from the looks of her pictures, she's in denial about her age; she dresses like an 8th grader.
My laptop does this really annoying thing while I'm typing where after about ten seconds, it starts inserting the text wherever my cursor is. Like just now I had to backspace and delete "wherever my cursor is" because it put it in the middle of the word "really" because the cursor was near there. SO IRRITATING. I'm not leaving my cursor over the text either, I can move it below or above the text and the same thing will happen in the text that my cursor is closest to. If I move my cursor outside of the text entry box, then after a few words, it'll stop accepting text as if I've clicked outside of the entry area. nge it?? It's driving me up the wall!! < - - left this one in for example
Why is this happening and how can I cha
I apologize if this is confusing, I'm not sure how else to word it
edit: thanks everyone. I am pretty careful about not touching the trackpad while typing but I will double my efforts
I just called the Subway I was at to get the lady's name who served me because I am thinking about calling to speak to a manager or corporate or something.
Why did this piss me off so much? Is it worth my time in reporting it to whoever, or should I just chill the fuck out? Let me know if I'm being a huge bitch about this.
( Collapse )
2. What was your favorite dance and why?
Thanks in advance!

To those of you that have/had a fwb: have you ever broken off the sex and still maintained a decent friendship? What if the friend was falling for you?

I'm trying to save money, so can't afford to get $8-10 lunches at places like Chipotle, etc anymore. I need some ideas.
When people dawdle while telling stories, I'll wave a hand in a circle and say, "Etcetera etcetera etcetera!" and surprisingly, it actually works and makes people finish their story. Yes, I am an asshole.
I have ones that smell like Christmas trees and cranberries so they're good for winter but I don't have any springtime candles. The only other candle I have is lemon lavender which is great but it's a small jar and it's burned down too far for me to get my current lighter in it.
Eg singing in public, sexy talk in the bedroom, eating seafood etc.
Which TQC member is in the elevator w/ you and what do you ask them while you're waiting?
I'm going out to dinner tonight and want to be able to enjoy my fooood D:
eta: I've taken allergy medicine and it has done nothing. I still think it's an allergy problem though.
- Would you consider the Marquis de Sade a misogynist?
- Would you consider his works to be dangerous to society or women?
- If your high-school aged child (or hypothetical child) came home from school and said that Justine was included in their English course curriculum (along with several other books of the era), what would you do? Complain to the school? Demand your child be placed in a different course?
But I've met people who grew up there who claim "New Jersey has a lot of nature and lots of fun outdoorsy stuff! Really!"
Is this true? If so, which state park should my family and I go camping in?
If you recommend against NJ after all, let me know your favorite northeastern U.S. camping destination! We'd like to be within driving distance from Boston, but slightly farther south is better at the moment, because we'd like to go sooner rather than later, so, you know, the mid-Atlantic is better than Canada (although we will be getting some awesome Canadian camping in during July).
Inspired by me getting multiple texts every time I don't reply instantly today. (Normally I'm pretty good with replying, but today's one of many days I don't feel attached to my phone.)
Will you motivate me to to my homework? I have two hours alone and no excuse.
Edit: missed a word.
What do you not enjoy about TQC?
if weed isn't your thing/you're job hunting/hate one of us/whatever, what are you doing for fun?
I'M FIXING MY HTML 1ST
P.S. If TQC picposts are to be believed, this will be the sexiest smoke circle ever
If you could recommend a book to serve as an introduction to that subject, what would it be?
If you happen to be an expert in something that really doesn't have an introductory level, like brain science or rocket surgery, feel free to recommend something a little more elementary -- but please, no "Dummies" books.
I have a Droid Incredible which is a pretty nice phone, but my contract is up in July and I'm thinking about switching to the iPhone. I'd prefer to spend less money and get the 16 gig, but my music library has just under 3,000 songs... idk how much storage the actual phone and apps use.
What kind of phone do you have? Do you love it?
don't know... what is your favorite healthy snack?
How come the sky looks all sunshiny and warm but it's uncomfortably chilly out?
Now that I have my own laptop, will I ever leave the couch again?
I also had pneumonia a few times. That probably would have taken me as well.
Morbid, but interesting to think about.
Got anything you want to complain about?
DK/DC: What are you/did you study(ing)? Are you in/going to graduate school? Do you/did you like the program at your school for your major?
Thanks to you all, I'm making Shrimp in Coconut Curry, Basmati Rice, and Coconut Green Beans.
Shall I ask to see my brain pictures afterwards? They will be looking at my brain, eye balls and optic nerves.
Will you check all of the ones that pertain to you?
If not, what are your favorite online game sites?
i also love the bad girls club and re-runs of reba.
Do you think it's possible for me to lose enough weight for them to fit again in just two weeks? What's my best shot? Would a crash diet work?
dk/dc/haha you're fat: what's the last thing to unpleasantly surprise you?
How would you go about handling the situation?
What would your recommendation be for someone that is interested in applying? Can you tell me about your experience or a friend's experience?
dk/dc: If you could live abroad for one year, where would it be? Why?
If you don't like getting high or songs about it, that's fine. You don't need to tell me about it.
I have never used avocados in anything and I hate guacamole.
What should I make/use them in?
If yes, how much have you lost so far?
How much more do you want to lose?
My job gives no breaks, including lunch breaks. We can leave and get food but must bring it back and stand and eat it at the counter while working.
What was your first experience using the world wide web?
What was the first thing you ever searched for?
Since Jan 2007
who else over thinks dumb shit like this?
my friend and i are having a Simon Pegg/Nick Frost viewing extravaganza on Friday and i said i'd bring a treat. i thought i'd bring something Englishy but now that i think about it, i don't know if there are any dessert-y type deals that are decidedly English.
do you know any? are there any? or should i just make cookies?
should i go tonight?
i was supposed to watch Dexter with a friend tomorrow but I really can't be bothered. What's wrong with me?
Anyway, the first time I tried to get him up, I sat on him and shook him and tried to get him up and he kept going "RESPECT ME RESPECT ME LEAVE ME ALONE RESPECT MY WISHES" And he was talking over me, which is disrespectful, no? Heh.
And just now I tried to get him up again, by being nicer this time, and he continued to talk over me, so I just yanked his covers off and told him to get the fuck up. He glared at me, got up, came to this room and tried to destroy the computer. Childish. I pushed him away, and he was all "How do you like it?" and stormed back to the bedroom. I got frustrated and angry, and punched the wall. I heard a CRACK, my hand hurt, and then pulled my hand back to see a hole in the wall. O.O I've never punched a hole in the wall. I've dented walls before, but never a HOLE. I didn't think I was strong enough to do that. And I punched with my right hand, too. I'm left-handed, so naturally my left arm is stronger. I guess it's different when I'm really mad. I'm such an idiot.
Have you ever punched a hole in a wall?
What should I do to get my husband up?
What should I do about this hole in the wall? I'm in an apartment, too. DAMN IT.
Inspired by the fact that I just did for the first time.
And unrelated... what is your favorite question you have ever asked here?
What is your favorite question that was ever asked here by another person here?
WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE TQCer? YOU CAN ONLY PICK ONE.
Are there any things you think of, like "if I get up early enough I can have a cup of tea/shower/whatever" or any things you do (put your clothes out the night before so you can get stuff done quicker, for instance)?
What do you recommend TQC? Could you include the price? I don't want to spend TOO much, but I think I need to spend a little more than the 8 bucks that I've been spending to get better results.
I am SUPREMELY annoyed at iTunes right now.
I have this album that iTunes refuses to show as one album. It creates multiple instances of the same album, for each track. So when I go in with my iPhone I see like 20 instances of the same album, each with one track.
I have spent a couple HOURS trying to sort this out. I just went completely scorched-earth, removed the songs from iTunes, used a ID3 stripper to remove the tags from the mp3 files, and reimported them... the problem PERSISTS. I don't even understand how this is possible.
Have you had this happen?
Do any of you know how to tame iTunes? God damn this is the worst piece of software.
UPDATE: Holy shit, I can't believe how much time and energy I spent solving this pretty trivial problem. THANK YOU ALL for your help, I have it figured out now. I am now considerably less furious, thanks to your actions!
should I add a layer of black shatter polish? or leave them alone? something else? I have bright red, a sort of cantalope/peachy orange, dark red, purple, and glitter, as well as pink & purple shatter.
if not that, what are 6 songs you currently like?
Also, I forgot I have at the stuff animal of Laa-Laa and maybe Po. One is at least two.
DK/DC: What's your favorite scent/smell?
Spaced is one of my absolute favorite TV shows. i watch it all the time except for the last episode. i just hate the idea of Tim and Daisy's adventures being over. my friend is the same with Pushing Daisies. she will not, under any circumstances, watch the last episode.
My laptop gets super hot and I've been thinking about getting one of those cooling mats that have the fans on them. Does anybody use these? What's a good one to buy? Do they actually work or is it a waste of money? I have a can of computer duster that I use for my keyboard but I've never used it on the bottom of the laptop where it's getting hot. Would that be a bad idea? I'm just afraid this thing is gonna burn up because it gets really hot, but it may just be normal because I've had a desktop for the past 4 years and forgot that laptops heat up occasionally.
I can't decide, but I like Cubone a lot.
I started my new job today at a pretty small company (maybe 25 people or so in the office). At a meet and greet held for me and another new colleague, I very briefly meet the CEO (who is well-known in my industry and thus a bit intimidating). By very briefly, I mean, "Hi, my name is ____" and that's it.
Later, after my lunch break, I ran into him in the building lobby. It was only the two of us. He was looking at his phone, and didn't see my until I was about to enter the elevator. He let me go in first. Awkwardness ensued. Being the CEO, I was intimidated and didn't say anything. I would have spoken if he started small talk, but didn't.
Would you have stayed quiet as well?
Now I feel weird because we'll have to see each other all the time and we clearly avoided talking to each other in the elevator. Way to start my first day...
My friend has a job interview for a teaching place and has to do a one-off English lesson. She's thinking basing it on World War 2 since that's what the children are studying in History right now. We've picked up on a few obvious books she can base a lesson on (The Diary of Anne Frank, Boy In The Striped Pyjamas) but do you have any particular suggestions for fiction written during/about World War 2? The children are aged about 11 so something that would be sort of suitable for that age group. Suggestions of poets/poems would be great too.
Do the streetlights in the pictures under the cut remind you of pokeballs?
( Collapse )
For me, it's mostly anything by Pink or Gaga.
What do you do with your hands/arms when you are sleeping?
My ex housemate has deleted me from her facebook, and has put this in her information:
H8ERS PLZ DIRECT UR ATTENTION HERE.
After going on a ‘delete-friend’ frenzy you may find this is the only page you can see on my profile. Sozza. This isn’t my attempt at passive-aggressive, I would have happily shown you the latter if I had a problem with you; this is just me culling the superficial friends that facebook promotes. I don’t really have 400+ friends. Nor do you. You have like 20 close ones. Max. I have deleted you because we don’t talk, or never really did. We might have felt obliged to add each other because of a high number of mutual friends, the kind of cyber politeness which is actually quite fucking weird when written down like this. I might have been your best friend once! But we're not anymore bbz. I don’t need to know where you went on your holidays/last night/who you are going out with/ the minutia of your everyday life, and you don’t need to know mine. It weirds me out that we could know if we wanted to though, seeing as I don’t know you and you don’t know me. Anyway goodbye! Don’t feel like you can’t talk to me if we ever actually do see each other in the REAL WORLD. Facebook is just all bullshit m8.
How do you feel about this? (I think she counted us as best friends once upon a time) Does that fact that she still has 478 friends make a difference? I'm finding it hard not chuckle here.

I've cleared out my history and cookies, but I'm confused. What makes some sites do this?
I'm using Firefox and have Windows 7 if that matters.
Do you maintain it? Or scratch it all off?
do you enjoy...?
WHY DOES NO ONE LIKE BANCHAN???
WHERE MY KRNZ AT???
i apparently took my birth control pill for tonight, then forgot i had taken it about an hour later and took tuesday's too. whoops
Will you suggest a really good allergy medicine? I was prescribed Clarinex but my prescription ran out.
Where is home to you?
What would you even do to over come something like that?
i am interested in setting up a website for my handmade products. if you have your own ecommerce store, i would like to ask:
1. how did you set it up? did you go to any website/ask someone else to set it up for you? :)
2. any advice you have for me? i have been watnting to do this for years but procrastinated till now and i don't want to wait anymore, haha
My girlfriend just sent me "Mammals." It was supposed to be "Mhmm." I was confused.
yes because some of his music is so fucking perfect (all of college dropout, lots of MBDTF) and i think he is so hilarious and entertaining and that everyone takes the fact that he has a huge ego so seriously. who cares if he knows how awesome he is? HOWEVER his verse in katy perry's 'ET' is sooo bad :(
