Why are all dresses so short these days? I am looking for a dress to wear to my cousin's outdoor graduation in may in colorado and I'm having a hard time finding anything that is an appropriate length. I've been looking at modcloth, tulle, anthro (too pricey!), f21, and urban and these dresses all look like they would barely cover my butt. Any suggestions for other cute shops?
What modern fashion things bother you?
What is your favorite movie "inspired by true events"?
how do you feel about ABBA?
would you be weirded out if you were eating a restaurant and they were playing ABBA songs?
I need careers advice! I'm looking for pub work in the summer, and there are two which are the top of the list.
I'm volunteering for my towns music festival this summer, and through a bit of facebook stumbling, discovered that one of the people at a meeting tonight (the first ive been to, and the only one I will make until it's the summer, i.e too late for a job) runs one of them.
Would it be unprofessional to message her on facebook and say as much, or cold call the pub as planned and hope I speak to her/she remembers me?
If I were to message her, I would say something along the lines of, 'I know this is slightly unconventional, but I was just looking at X's (guy who i'm a sub to) page and saw you on it and saw you run the pub' etc etc.
dk/dc; What is your dream job?
When you go to the dentist, does it ever seem like your hygienist is trying to carve up your gums like a Thanksgiving turkey?
How often do you floss?
I'm trying to figure out if I just have awesome luck and always get the robo-hygienists who don't understand that OW THERE ARE NERVES IN THAT SQUISHY PINK STUFF AROUND MY TEETH LET'S NOT SINK THAT SHARP HOOK THING INTO THEM OKAY? or if it's somehow punishment for my less-than-stellar flossing habits.
For those of you who are watching Camelot on Starz, did you think they came up with a surprisingly dark interpretation of the Lady in the Lake?
I like to keep my house smelling good, but I don't like the chemical-scent of most home fragrances/candles/sprays/ect. Any ideas for a more natural approach?
What news stories have you followed closely recently (or in the last few years)?
I've been following the George Huguely murder trial pretty closely, because it happened in my home town.
I also tend to get drawn into missing persons cases.

What theme parks do you want to visit in the future?
This question is inspired by a book that I just got done reading.
You watch your mother wither away and suffer from breast and ovarian cancer and then discover that you have the gene that gave you an 87% chance of getting the same cancer. You have two options to choose from:
a) Wait for the cancer to strike.
b) Get a prophylactic double mastectomy (which is basically the surgical removal of one or both breasts). You'd have the option to have breast reconstruction.
Which do you choose?
DC or N/A: Who wrote the last book that you read?
is it right if teenage killers receive the death penalty?
Hey folks, I have a question about Excel! I'd Google but my G-fu sucks when it comes to Excel - I can never figure out the right search terms to find what I'm looking for. JK! Obvious answer is super fucking obvious.
Is there any way to hyperlink to a specific file on my computer in Excel (so that the file opens when it's clicked)? This particular spreadsheet is just for my use so the files shouldn't need to be hosted somewhere externally, I don't think...
DK/DC: Will you tell us about some pet peeves/little things that annoy you to no end? TQC will then share in your bitchfest and make you feel not so crazy. Hopefully.
I'm sitting in the student center and some older gentleman just asked to share my table. Now we are facing each other. Luckily I'm on my laptop. I hate when people invade my space like this.
What are some awkward experiences that you've had similar to this?
For those of you with a SO, what is something you'd like to say to them.. but haven't?
What is your name, anyway?
I'm flying home tomorrow. Last night I did laundry in order to pack a few things. However, the one sweatshirt I wanted to take (a fleece zip-up hoodie) didn't make it in the wash. I use it more as a coat and have only worn it maybe 3 times since the last time I washed it. It doesn't smell. Should I wash it tonight? I will have access to do laundry when I go home.
I got this crazy leg cramp in my thigh last night and it's still kind of lingering, I guess would be the best way to describe it. Do you know of any good stretches to help ease this up? It's on the outside of my thigh, closer to my hip than my knee. Only concerned because I have to sit on a plane tomorrow.

Have you ever run into an old lover and wondered if he/she pictured you nude when he/she saw you?
My high school boyfriend (my first) once told me he still thought about me when he masturbated.
If you could have any superpower, which would you choose? Caveat: if anybody catches you using it or figures out that you have a superpower, it will be immediately revoked. And you can't combine like 'I can fly but I'm invisible' THAT'S CHEATING

If you were 8 years old and had a 22 year old college student as a mentor, where would you want them to take you?
I am mentoring a kid who has an incarcerated parent, and we're going out for the first time today. I am trying to think of where to take him. He's VERY shy and the only thing he's really shared with me is that he likes video games and wrestling, but I am trying to get him to explore things outside of sitting inside his home.

I used to sleep in pitch darkness but for the past few months I've needed to put on a movie to fall asleep. my movie of choice for the past month or so has been Tangled because it's cute and I've seen it so many times I don't need to pay attention to it.

I'm working on my cover letter for a job in Singapore.
The job ad was e-mailed to me, and the person who sent out the e-mail signed it like this:
"Tiow Aun, Lee
Underwater World, Singapore
So...uh...what is this person's last name? Is it Lee, or is it Tiow Aun?
Can anyone tell if the person who sent this is male or female?
I want to start off my cover letter by saying "Dear Mr./Ms (name)" but I have no idea what this person's name is, or how to address them. Should I just put "To whom it may concern"?
If a manager of a Pepboys gave you a card worth 4 free oil changes or $95.00 worth of merchandise as restitution because his men sent you home in an unsafe car would you use it?

What if the only store you could use it at was 1 1/2 hours from your current home?
Did you know that lil spawn is home with me right now, and he's roaming all around the floor? AND he's on CAM??

I don't always like hanging out with my boyfriend and my friends at the same time. Has anyone ever felt this way? Do you dislike hanging out with certain groups of people together?
when you first started wearing contacts, how long did it take your eyes to "get used to them"?
i've always been a glasses wearer. 5 years ago i tried color contacts and did fine with them, but they dried out my eyes so i stopped using them. since then, i've worn glasses. last week, i got the itch to try them again, but i seriously regret it because everything is blurry! i've gone back to my optometrist at least 5 times in the past week to see what's wrong and he can't find anything. he says with them on, my vision is better than 20/20. they are sitting on my eye correctly.
i'm having trouble seeing both near and far away. do my eyes just need to get used to these? has this happened to anyone before?
Do you watch any reality competition shows? Will you talk about them and who you want to win? Or if not, talk about reality show contestants from past shows?
How would you deal with a friend who thinks they know everything about everything and talks loudly over you when you try to explain that they do not, in fact, know all the things?
Not spending time with them/not being friends with them is not an option.
If you could be transported into a video game, which one would it be?
A) Being nice/polite
B) Being yourself/voicing your opinions
Which do you think is (most of the time) more important?
Which are you more naturally inclined to be?
Brought to you by: I'm a naturally critical/nit-picky person and often want to point out what I think is wrong with things. However, my mom's the same way and it really hurt my self-esteem as a child so I try to bottle this up. This leaves me feeling like some quiet, smiley, sugar-puff person that I'm not. I am a conundrum: the sensitive asshole.

Blackberry Torch 9800
Which would you choose? Why?
[FYI, I'm leaning toward an Android phone, and I'm not interested in a Windows Phone, at least not right now. The iPhone antenna issue concerns me, and the lack of Flash support in Safari is annoying.]

Will you use this post to rant about things that are bothering you?

I grew up having one but I can honestly say that I never want one again.
When was the last time something made you RAGEFACE?
I was looking at pets section of CL and someone posted an ad asking for help to find a place so she could keep her dogs. So someone else replied saying that renters should never own pets because they obviously can't care for them and went off to say that's why she only adopts her animals outs to HOMEOWNERS. Imagine her rant with more spelling errors and exclamation points though. :\
ETA: Apparently TQC had a great day.
DK/DC: Will you post a favourite song of yours from when you were 10?
