Congratulations -- you've been named the Supreme Totalitarian Ruler of Your Respective Country! You are now the sole legislative, executive & judiciary system for your people.
What changes to you make to your nation's legal system? Which laws do you abolish, which ones do you amend and what new ones do you institute? (Assume that abortion is legal & marriage is a right granted to all consenting citizens of legal age, regardless of orientation)
do you use any awesome-smelling fancy soaps? what do they smell like? (my definition of a "fancy soap" is anything you couldn't find at cvs or target, especially if it comes from a soap-specific store like lush or sabon)
i'm obsessed with the little free soap samples that sabon hands out on the street and if they weren't so expensive, i'd get a big block of the green one. i also recently got a gift card for bath and body works and i'm really excited to go shower and use my new orange ginger scrubby stuff. woo!
Do you add water to liquid soap or ketchup or whatever to get every last bit out?
What do you think of musician or athlete-turned-actors? Do you wish they'd go back to their original profession?
Do you think you're a good kisser?
Okay so, on Monday my housemates and I are having a housewarming party and I'm in charge of food. It's an all day sort of thing, 2-10 pm; people will just be dropping by and leaving as they wish. This leaves me with certain challenges when it comes to food, and I'm out of ideas. So far I have salsa and chips, hummus and pita, veggie sticks, cookies and I'm ding pulled pork in the slow cooker for something a little more solid. Any suggestions for me?
What's the longest you have waited for service?
(I got to the service shop early, so I've been sitting here for an hour and my car is still outside. Thinking about taking advantage of their Courtesy Car.)
What's healthier, a hot dog or a hamburger? Both are made on a grill and probably made from the cheapest meat possible.
DK/DC: Do you bring food to work or buy food when there?
Do you cuss more online or IRL?

When does erotic modeling turn into porn?
What are you going to wear today?
TQC, I am going to the library! When I come back, I am going to contact the HR department of a school district to which I applied. They contacted my references, but I have heard nothing since.
Should I call or email?
Either way, what should I say/write? I've never contacted a perspective employer in regards to a career. I really want to get the ball rolling because 1. I'd love to start teaching ASAP and 2. I need to let my current job know ASAP when I plan on leaving.
[EDIT] They are overstaffed and not accepting phone calls from prospective teachers.
Help me decide which book to read first?
1. Black Pearls: a faerie strand by Louise Hawkes
2. Busy Woman Seeks Wife by Annie Sanders
3. 99 Coffins by David Wellington
4. Gulliver's Travels
5. Collages by Anais Nin
6. Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiment

have your big toes ever started feeling numb because you've stood on them for a long time?
I just bought a brand new watch last week, and there's already a scratch on the crystal.
Scratches are inevitable on something worn every day, right? Ughhhh...
have you ever interviewed/been involved with a job that requires you to give phone numbers of people you know so they too can be sucked in? it's a scam, right?
1. I have a long sleeved, loose, cotton shirt (one of those things you see south-asian women wear often) that I bought at a craft thing, and the other day, I noticed my highlighter leaked on it - how do you get highlighter out of cotton? tide stain pen didnt work. I've been told to try Hairspray, or a Vinegar soak. do you think either of these would work?
2. I'm going to a potluck tonight, and I don't know what to take. its outside (so nothing that has to be heated) and it has to be gluten free (so I can eat it) and not a snack. at the moment, I'm thinking Quinoa Tabbouleh, but anybody got any other suggestions?
For those of you looking for a job, how's the job search going?
How's your day going?

If you would have married the first person that you ever had sex with what would your last name be? (Guys, imagine that you'd be taking his/her name - same goes for the ladies that love the ladies, you'd be taking her name).
Is a bread machine a worthwhile purchase? Most of my other kitchen gadgets get used so I'm not worried about buying it and having it end up neglected in a cabinet. I'm just wondering if it's going to be that much different from just buying bread from the grocery store. We usually go through one loaf a week.
How do you like your macaroni & cheese?
Google has been very unhelpful, so maybe I'll have some luck here in TQC.
Do any of you TQCers own Betta fish? Could you perhaps pass along any good websites you have on betta care, etc.?
I have two little guys and I'm having trouble finding a tank(s) that are the appropriate size for them.
Pics of your pretty fishies encouraged :)

Anything else on your mind?
I look damn good today, and I have NOWHERE to go. :( I'm gonna drink my tears tonight.
I'm about to take the first quiz in one of my online classes. This is the extent of the information that the teacher told us about the content: "Take the Quiz on the Week 1 readings. See the quiz Announcement from yesterday for more info"
and then the announcement from yesterday says "The following Test has been made available in Quizzes & Midterm: Quiz Wk1"
Anyway, I'm nervous about taking it as she seems to be a fairly harsh grader so far. What can I do to calm myself down before taking this quiz?
DK/DC: I went to count how many posts were between my last post and this one and I kept thinking "four is at least five" and it still makes me laugh. There is no second question here, just that fyi. Unless you wanna tell me about your favorite hilarious TQC moment.
So, today I was a complete idiot and forgot to get my and my roommate's rent money to the rental company. She didn't have her half until today and I was supposed to pick it up at home after I got off work and run it to them before they closed at 5. I remembered about this at around 5:10.
SO. The 5th is the last day they accept rent before incurring a late fee, but the 5th is on a Sunday (they're only open M-F). My question is: Since the 5th is on a Sunday, is there any chance that they'll forgive the late fee this time if I pay on Monday? We've never paid late before. I'm tempted to drive over and see if they have a drop box of some sort I could toss an envelope with the money into, but it seems foolish to put in an envelope full of cash and I do not have checks.
Have you ever been in this situation? What would you do in my place? I'd really appreciate some advice right now, since the place is closed and I can't ask them personally, and a late fee would really, really hurt right now.
When you miss something/someone, do you miss them more when you see pictures of them?
on tricky's album pre-millennium tension there's a cover of...slick rick's? song "Bad Dream". The girl rapping the lyrics is Martina Topley-Bird yes? If not, who is it?
The creepy old guy at work uses the slang term "trim" when he talks about women.
Do you know where that comes from???
Seen any good movies lately?
Everybody is asking me lately, and I don't know the answer! Can you guys help? What do I want for my birthday?

What is the last thing you posted on tumblr?
Feel free to link to yours or ones you like.
If you comment in someone's journal and then they privatize the entry or delete the journal I know it says in your inbox "Not Authorized to read the comment" but....
But, if they undelete/made the entry public, would it be readable in your inbox again? I usually delete the notification when this happens so idk.
Do you drink any 'light' canned/bottled alcoholic beverages?
I bought a video game at Walmart. It's unopened, still in the shrink wrap, I have the receipt. I need cash for an event I'm going to tomorrow. I paid for it with a debit card, but if I go return it, will I get cash back?
sorry, i love talking about the casey anthony trial.
I was watching Dr. Drew and he had a theory that "Zanny the Nanny" was actually just Casey drugging Caylee with xanax.
Mind blown. I've popped "zannies" before, why didn't i think of that?!
Have you heard any interesting theories?
How angry will you be if Casey doesn't take the stand?
Why do you think Xander turned into such a self-righteous douchebag after high school?
If your child fell off the top of a slide or something, then said their arm hurt, how long would you wait to take them to the doctor? If it were visibly swollen? If they didn't use it at all? What about if they are 'dramatic' about injuries, even small scrapes?
edit: one of my preschoolers fell off the slide at his house on SUNDAY...he hasn't used his arm since, said it hurt, cried when someone touched it or he tried to wash his hands and it was swollen. Parents took him to the doctor today..and it was broken!!! poor kid!!! we'd been telling them for days that he really complained about it :( But, they also don't want to pick up their baby when he has 103 degree fever...they say it's teeth.
Graeme Base wrote books like Animalia. I really like his work, especially his music.
I went to the Graeme Base official website, but it contains no contact information whatsoever. It seems the guy is clueless about how the internet works or something, but I'm a huge fan.
Does anyone know how I can contact Graeme Base?
What are your favorite boy names? Or, alternatively, just list boy names. Thanks in advance.
Is 22 a 'big deal' kind of birthday? Or has my ex step-father just forgotten how old I am?
He sent me a text asking what I want for my birthday because "it's a big one this year." I think he's just forgotten that I've already turned 21.
Dk/dc: What did you do for your last birthday?
What's your Pokemon dream team? You can pick six.
