Hardback/paperback books or devices such as the Kindle for when it comes to reading?
Kind of gross, but: have you ever had a blackhead in your nose before? I have, and it sucks.
I don't know what happened but somehow the home button on my (1st gen, 8gb) ipod touch got stuck in the down position so I can't use it (the home button) at all. I do not live near an Apple store but will be able to get to one in a few days.
Any at-home suggestions?
Alternative question: in what ways do you fail at electronics?
My family used to play a board game and then I would brush my teeth and hop into bed and my mom and dad would trade off nights and read me a chapter or two from a book. These are very fond memories for me.
also, a real question/poll:
which types of tea do you like the most?
Why are you up right now?
Would you gain 10lbs if you were getting paid $30 per pound, so, $300 total?
Would you gain 20lbs if you were getting paid $50 per pound, so, $1,000 total? If you can't gain the weight normally you can be put on a special diet that'll make you balloon
Would you gain 50lbs if you were getting paid $200 per pound, making it $10,000 total? If you can't gain the weight normally you can be put on a special diet that'll make you balloon
Would you gain 100lbs if you were getting paid $1,000 per pound, making it $100,000 total? If you can't gain the weight normally you can be put on a special diet that'll make you balloon
should i watch the last episodes of Spaced tonight, or at least hte second to last? or should i save it for a more ~special~ time in lieu of a drunk, lonely night?
do you identify with the demographic "millennial" or "generation y"? traits used to describe them are things like: self-expressive, confident, open to change.
how do you feel events such as 9/11 and various shenanigans in the middle east have affected your generation?
ETA: i should probably be more clear. for example, world war ii and the great depression overwhelmingly shaped and changed the morals and thoughts and opinions of those who grew up in that generation. do you feel like this has happened for this generation? are we more suspicious of others and afraid of danger? is there a sense of "lost innocence" or is that just me? i recall the world seeming far more innocent before 9/11, then everything changed.
What's a classic movie, "must see" movie that most people have seen that you've never seen before?
I've never seen The Sound of Music or Gone With the Wind.

2. What time of day are you most productive, homework-wise?
Personally, I probably spend an average of four hours every day doing homework. My most productive time seems to be between 10 AM and 3 PM.
or prehistoric creature?
or ~legend~ (think loch ness monster) creatrue?
or just... fake creature?
Do you ever experience something that you could have sworn you dreamt about before?
Edit: Any examples?
What can I do that doesn't cost money?
What's the last stupid thing you did?
How do you handle door-knockers that sell things or religion?
Was it based on the advice or happen later on?
Which was your favorite and your least favorite?
I was a bulldog and a flash (like a lightning bolt), then in college I was a panther and then a jaguar. I liked the bulldog best.
I just saw a job ad that wanted years of experience and required a bachelors degree for a doctor's office receptionist job. Sheesh.
Would you say you have changed drastically since then?
A. Stay at the office and read my book. No coffee, but I don't have to go anywhere.
B. Go to Starbucks and read my book. Coffee, but I have to go out.
C. Try to take a nap in my car, but I think it's too cold outside for that.
Alternatively, how are you feeling (physically) at this very moment? Be as detailed as you like!
What good news have you heard today?
They look/sound good, but I'm wondering if I should add some walnuts for a little more pizazz.
Would adding nuts to this be tasty or too much?
He isn't allergic to nuts
I don't eat beef or pork, so IDK how the end result will truly be
The recipe can be found here:
Also during this stop, the cop shines his light in your car VERY briefly (and nothing illegal or anything was in sight--not that there was anything illegal, but there was nothing to give the cop reason to believe so either) and then immediately tells you to step out of the car. He then tells you that you seem nervous and asks to search your car.
Besides the obvious giving consent or not giving consent to search, what would you do?
Can a cop do this kind of thing? Can they tell you to step out of the car without a reason to do so, at a normal traffic stop that was supposedly about speeding?
Not about me, btw.
"nothing" is not an option sry
Also, I am meeting up with technocratic soon. Upon first saying hola! should I go in for a handshake or a hug?
i'd never ever heard of this name before, then all of a sudden there's two girls at my work with it. each with a different spelling, too!
do you like the song "E.T." by katy perry? i dooo
If I were bagging groceries, I would put the milk in the same bag as the eggs
I loved Zenon and The Color of Friendship when I was growing up.
If that doesn't apply to you, have you ever been to South America? Is it somewhere you'd like to go? Have you ever worked/volunteered abroad - how long and under what circumstances?
and more importantly, why is it such a source of self doubt for me?
i don't actually mind being single, i like it most of the time. maybe it's because i haven't been in one, but relationships seem suffocating. but the fact that no one ever asks me out or to hang out or asks for my number really bothers me. i see all my friends find people and relationships and just in general get validated but i rarely get any kind of attention or even a "hey, baby" and it really bothers me! i really feel that i'm totally unattractive and completely unappealing and i don't like it at all. i don't need a boyfriend, i just need to feel good about myself. but it's really exhausting being the only one telling me i'm good enough, i'm smart enough and doggonit,
and yes, i get that confidence is attractive, but i am pretty confident. i'm actually a bit full of myself. it's like, i feel like i'm good enough, i feel like i'm attractive, and i walk around like i am. but i have this weird combination of thinking i'm the greatest, most awesomest person, while feeling that no one is going to agree with me.
what can i do? is this something to bring up with my therapist? i don't feel like it's something therapy can really help, and what is a middle aged dude going to know about being an insecure, 20-something girl, anyway?
do you think telling people to go "die in a fire" is a form of cyberbullying?
Can anyone give me a link to it?
DK/DC/No: What's the last song you had stuck in your head?
i'm afraid i'm going to feel really stupid and embarrassed watching it.
dk/dc: what's the corniest thing someone has ever said to you/done for you?
Please explain how you're feeling through a picture of a cartoon character.
What is your favorite appetizer/party food?
Do you know of any stores that are currently selling casual summer dresses with pockets? Will you link me to them?
inspired by parent interactions on my so-called life
On top of my head are Saving Private Ryan, Life is Beautiful and Schindler's List.
How shall I entertain myself in the meantime? I'm working my way through 240 episodes of an astronomy podcast and I can't use a computer much.
do you know of any currently operating cults?
ETA: good, violent cults. of course scientology is secretly violent...
Want to tell me about the most obnoxious/annoying/just plain bad boss you've ever had?
DK/DC/this job thing isn't my schtick: Do you like tiramisu? I just had this amazing one tonight that was frozen.
how do i entertain a five-year-old? or at least not be really awkwardly standoffish?
What's your favorite painting?
If not, what should I do later tomorrow when after I do homework.
Do you tell them that you need some time alone or what? My mom keeps knocking on my door and nothing she says makes any sense to me and omg...I can't handle it.
Does anyone have any low-cal versions of some favorite food?
So far I've made amazing turkey cutlets and super low-cal chocolate chip cookies.
I need more suggestions!
Mystery solved. Thanks guys!
What weird things did you believe when you were a little kid? For example, I believed that little mice lived in the traffic lights and when the lights changed color, that was the mice pushing a little button on the inside of the traffic light. I have no clue where I got that from.
Accidentally dragged the wrong folder to the recycle bin last night, and it was so large it automatically deleted it. Can't really afford to pay for someone to retrieve the files at a shop, so figured I'd try. Thanks for any help :X
This is what I am observing right now....
You have a three month old baby son and he cries probably more than your average baby does. He wants to eat too often, and he therefore gets really bad gas and stomach aches. He just seems to be generally uncomfortable and maybe not the happiest baby, but there's nothing really wrong for-say.
So he's crying and fussing and you're tired and frustrated (which is natural).
Is it normal and understandable to say things like "shut up" to your baby, and "what an ass," or "what a brat" when he wont settle down?
Or is this abnormal?
Instead of my stylist, the owner trimmed them. She's done it twice so far and both time she asked me what kind of bangs I had. (Wispy/straight across/blunt)
Isn't that something she should be able to see by looking at my hair?
If you're talking to someone on OKC or whatever dating site you use and it's going absolutely nowhere, do you start making stuff up? Do you ever tell the person they're an asshole? Do you ignore them?
Will you share some interesting messages you've received?
Some many asked me if I would be interested in bossing him around and making him do my chores.
I also change my name on occasion and tell guys that I'm into playing the harp and tap dancing.
( Collapse )
Then why aren't you in chat right now?
I am annoyed and I haven't had a vacation in 2 years. Because I can't take the time off work.
when did you last have a vacation? If you could plan your dream vacation, where would you go?
How long is your perfect vacation? Does your vacation have to be where you go away, or just a few days off?
I'd just like some time off work where they leave me the hell alone.
How did you justify the decision you made?
If you were ever in a situation where you had to make a decision between your morals and the law, what would you do? How would you make your choice?
Have you ever had to move back home?
Will you tell me a joke?
So how about one of the ladies in the group, doesn't tell anyone she has no idea how to use powerpoint and hasn't even read her section until... oh, a few days ago.
Cue shitty slides and stuff that has nothing to do with the project and here's me already subbing for one non-contributing member...
Should I ditch her shitty slides and force her to use the ones I've created or let her ass wreck
Two other members besides myself really put their all into the presentation. One girl did a lame ass job, one dude was a fucking no show the entire time, that's why I tried to kick his ass out of the group and the professor just said he'd give him a Zero but let him present cause it's so late, and this one lady... she kept acting like she was on it.
I mean god damn she's trying to ruin my fucking presentation!
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
will u post a quote from a movie so we can guess where it's from?
What did you do today?
Me and my sister returned a lost dog to it's owners!
Can you tell us about a weird ability you have?
I am really good at telling when a lane will end/which lane will end when there is no signage on a road I've never driven on before.
we have to take our dryer apart every three months because this one wheel gets out of shape. our washer leaves random scorch marks on clothes.
I'm tempted to call a repairman, but the crap is nine years old. my husband says repairmen just gouge you on this stuff and I'm being cheap trying to put off a new set. he might be right, I am pretty cheap. but I also feel wasteful thinking about getting rid of something if I'm not absolutely sure it's DEAD.
Are cover letters necessary?
but then it turned out sort of great/okay/tolerable?
I went in for my shitty retail job today and I think it's going to be the bomb.
It's full of lazy mofos who's hours I'm going to steal and apparently I've already made a friend of the AsstManager who's basically doing the same shit I was doing at my old job.
EVERYONE ELSE'S JOB! :D
She said she needed real help, that's why she hired me. And that all of my references told her awesome things about me. I'm going to have to go back to my old job and give high fives.
We gonna work it out.
Anything happen good today?
I FOUND A DOLLAR IN MY POLISCI BACK! *goes to the vending machine*
Have you ever had a smoothie that involved grapes?
Does anyone elses Hotmail totally suck and have you found a way to fix it?
For the past two days, whenever I've logged onto Hotmail I can click on my emails, but none of them will open, even though it says it's loading forever. I also can't access any of my folders, or my contacts; clicking yes, actually showing content no. What the fuck is up with this?
Have you traveled abroad alone (especially in a country where you don't speak the language)? Would you want to do that, or avoid it like the plague?
What is the most interesting place you've traveled? How about the best travel story you have?
Have you ever hitchhiked?
Will you please use this post to tell us a bit about yourself and make some friends based on common interests? Or just make friends with someone that you've seen around but haven't asked :)
DK/DC - Why does LJ keep showing me the ad for the 2-week paid account trial but when I click it, it says "you already have a paid account trial"? I know that, why don't they until I click through?
If you do, post something here in comments in that language, or look for comments in a language you recognize and start a conversation!
Is this a hoax? I feel like it's legit because it's from facebook. What gives? Should I do it?
Has someone ever been attracted to you (or you attracted to someone else) even though you lived two totally different lifestyles?
Can a relationship like that last?
No cheating & saying you wouldn't be with someone who thought that; it's pretty obscure & specific & it, or anything close, has never come up.
what was yours?
