Which celebrities are you told you resemble?
What was or will be for dinner tonight?
Preferred type of peanut butter?
Preferred type of bread?
Preferred type of jelly?
Do you know who any of the following people are? By this I mean not that you recognize their names, but that if someone told a joke about them or showed you a clip of something they were in, you'd know who it was.
Inspired by all the celebrities I started looking up after hearing them referenced on Family Guy.
How many times do you watch a favorite movie? I have about five that I watch endlessly and my boyfriend never rewatches movies. Who is weirder?
I need to raise $4000 to go visit my best friend who moved to Japan. Is playing scratch tickets a responsible and reasonable plan?
Mine is "Lightning Crashes".
I was wondering if anyone knows a trick to (at this point, there's no stopping the peeling) help it peel faster without looking totally splotchy? Or anything else that might help?
Do any spas or salons have any sort of treatment or chemical peels that they do in these situations? I feel bad going in and asking someone to do that for me, but I have to be at work in a tank top and right now it's looking pretty bad. I feel kinda like a zombie.
I saw this on the wall next to me and freaked out haha!! Its actually very small!
What are your favourite conspiracy theories?
What does this sentence say?
We just booked international tickets with them (cheapest!) and I'm usually a Delta or American girl for international flights so I'm a little nervous.
What is your favorite airline?
Anyone been to San Sebastian, Spain? or perhaps the northern region of Spain?
Any tips? things that we must do?
Thanks in advance :)
Is there a hobby you think you'd love but haven't taken up yet?
What should I make for dinner tonight? I'm going to the store soon so the world (or the Vons anyway) is my oyster.
Has that ever happened to you (stumbled upon music by accident only to find that you love it)? If so, what music was it? Can you tell me your favorite song so I can listen to it?
I couldn't pick my favorite of his, so here's one I really like:
( Collapse )
Your thoughts on men wearing flip-flops?
What is a good place to meet singles in your area?
I'm an intern at a public defender's office and I just turned in my 2 assignments and the bossman isn't here to give me another.
How are you at getting presents for people?
Except for a couple people, I'm starting to realize I suck at it. My boyfriend's birthday is in 9 days and I'm pretty sure his present sucks.
Who do you think is the most talentless musician/performer to ever make it really big?
Britney Spears. Don't get me wrong, I loved Britney as much as any other American back in the day, but seriously, her voice is like omg awful. It's like listening to a cartoon rodent sing and this is after all the computers have come into play. I guess she was cute and a decent enough dancer, though.
- What movies did you love as a kid?
- What recent kids movie did you enjoy?
- When are you the most child like?
So we've been e-mailing back and forth and she just sent me this:
As far as money, I currently have a loan for the car through Santander Consumer USA and they have the title. In CA, when you pay for the vehicle I write up a bill of sale http://dmv.ca.gov/forms/reg/
Is this actually how it works?
He cant have anything too hot/too cold or crumbly
What should I get for me?
Is this considered a "liquid"? I don't want to risk it getting taken away as I don't plan on checking any luggage.
What are the best job search websites? Which ones, after you use them, do you hear back from employers? Okay I realize this is very vague and subjective. What I'm really asking is if craigslist is worth using...I find it the easiest site to navigate and use and then actually apply, but I feel like so many people must be applying, I don't even know if it's worth it.
Am I better off networking than sending out applications like mad? I have access to my college's alumni information and I could contact ones working in places I want to be...but I have no idea what to say to them.
what advice do you have on standing out above everyone else? Should I be finding volunteer work or an unpaid internship just for some experience? ugh, I'm a bit lost, but I just want to find a job that doesn't suck.

Assume you're not going to school/have no other commitments, and your car gets pretty good gas mileage. If it matters, the two kids are 3 years and 6 months, and the family has 2 friendly dogs and a pool. I don't have rent, utilities, etc. to pay -- just my car insurance and cell phone, which come to less than $250/month. I'm just trying to decide if the pay is worth it.. but $800/month sounds a lot better than the $0 I'm making right now.
i'm running windows vista and my browser is chrome, if that matters at all.
I recently got the urge to make a couple of my own:

Well over the last few years this man has surely started to show signs of Alzheimer's. He is completely incapable of recognizing any cues, to the point where he sings loudly and for a long time when no one else is singing, or during someone else's solo. He can't follow directions and is constantly asking for help. He relies on other choir members to bring him to and from practice and services, and has even started taking other people's music (and personal belongings) because he thinks they're his. Bottom line, everyone feels that he is quite disruptive.
Clearly he can't handle being in the choir anymore. The choir director wants to very politely, and with as much tact as possible, "retire" him. However, the church (and the choir) are one of his major passions. This might devestate him.
Is the choir director justified in kicking him out?
EDIT - Thanks for the response guys. Most of these sentiments are the ones I agree with, but I'll add a few things just to play devils advocate:
- He's been the choir librarian and had other roles in the past; he can't handle it. He can't properly put his own shoes on in the morning
- He has a son that the church is in contact with. I'll admit I'm not sure what the son's feelings are on the subject. But it appears he's getting enough help from his family that he still lives on his own.
- I completely agree that the lack of singing talent should not disbar you from an amateur, volunteer, everyone's-welcome church choir. There are more than a few memebers of that choir that flat-out can't sing. The difference is with this man is that his lack of singing talent is actually disruptive to the choir, and to the church service, thereby disrupting everyone's worship experience.
- If the director decides to do so, she will consult with the parish priest and the man's family first.
I present these things not to try to suggest that the overwhelming "no's" aren't right. I'm kind of leaning towards don't kick him out as well. I just...I definitely see the other side as well and may not have clarified this very well.
would it be cheaper to take a big shuttle bus to manhattan and get on a train to newark? or that air tram thing?
what is your favourite beyonce song?
WILL THIS POTTMORE BULLSHIT BRING HARRY POTTER TO THE KINDLE?
and to make this slightly more interesting than it obviously already is. what's an unpopular opinion you have??

I LOVE NICHOLAS CAGE AND YOU CAN ALL SUCK IT!
Let's say you work in a large building or plant. You see people that work in other departments every day, but don't really talk to them much. When you walk by them, do you smile and say hi to them, or just walk by without saying a word? Would your answer change if you worked in a pretty laid back place as opposed to a more formal place of business?
Why is it raining? It feels like winter today.
What is a hobby that is currently getting most of your attention? I've been knitting and crocheting dishcloths and pot holders because they're so fast and easy to make.
What do you store your bulletin board borders in? I just got a ton from a teacher who's moving, but they're currently in a plastic bag. I need something sturdier.
I thought about getting one of those wrapping paper bins from Rubbermaid, but those are kinda seasonal.
Also: Any reading teachers here? I just got a job teaching reading to 7th graders and I am excited!
i told him i'd call him when i got home but then i went to text him earlier and the back of my neck felt like it caught fire and i was like MAYBE I SHOULD WAIT.
you know, in case he doesn't actually give a shit. and i don't want to seem needy or clingy~~ and i managed to convince myself he doesn't like me whilst i was away, despite all the evidence to the contrary. my brain is magic.
I recently found out how Islamophobic Elizabeth Moon is (yes, I realize I'm about 2.5 years late). I really wanted to read her Parksenarion books, but now that I've read her comments, I have no interest.
Same with Orson Scott Card.
do you think that being first gives them a disproportional influence in the outcome of the election?
Should we change it up and let other states get to be first some?
Do you automatically assume he is lying/guilty?
Why or why not?
Brought to you courtesy of a whole bunch of people at my local library not "getting" "To kill a Mockingbird"...yes, different circumstances but it made me want to ask this question due to some of the things I overheard being said.
I also cooked with polenta in a another recipe for the first time today and have heaps left. What else can I do with it? Inspire me!
dk/dc: What is your favourite meal/dish?
Say you're in love with your FWB but he doesn't feel the same way. Say that everytime you meet new people together, they automatically assume you're dating (or even married, as has happened a few times). Bearing this in mind, would you try and fish for an invitation to a party that one of his friends is throwing over the holiday weekend? Assume that you don't know any of these people personally, but he's talked about them tons and they seem like awesome people, so wanting to meet them is only natural, yes? Would you ask if you could come, or would that just be awkward?
I stupidly went tanning last year before my wedding.
Now I have a funky mole with the tell-tale signs of irregular border, unusual color and now it's itching/flaking.
On a scale of 1-10, how freaked out should I be?
I don't want to get it checked out now because I'm switching health insurance in a month or two and don't want to be denied for a preexisting condition :(
[EDIT] that bout of tanning certainly wasn't my first episode of skin damage. I've been somewhat notorious for forgoing sunscreen and then burning like hell.
What was good about today?
What was terrible today?
DK/DC Anything post?
DKDC: What is your favorite fairy tale?
I think they're super awkward and cheesy. I don't know why, I just can't stand them.
How often do you work out? Do you feel like you can stand to lose some weight?
I hate doing it and do it so sporadically. For a period of time, I'll work out like 5 times a day, two hours at a time. And then for months, I'll do nothing. Definitely need to lose weight.
What's the most money you've spent on any one thing? What was it on?
I think my tuition at this point. I'm wondering whether it was worth it considering I'm unemployed.
What are you craving right now?
Shrimp lo mein. om nom nom.
What do you do when you need to (locally) ~escape from life for a little while?
Alternatively, do you have angular cheilitis? How the motherfuck do you get rid of it, or at least soothe it?? I've had a crack in my lip for 2 days and it just keeps getting worse, no matter how many vitamins I take and no matter how much antibiotic cream I put on it. :( I feel like a leper. lol
I love this one: Guys, I'm fucking sick of this. I'm almost 20 and haven't been able to score a better job than a fucking cook at a local fast food joint. What makes it worse is that I live in a small town so business is pretty limited, and where I work is the only place that'll hire high school graduates. I'd get the hell out of this town if I could actually drive too, but I've failed every damn test I've ever taken. I'm socially awkward, even my only other co-worker fucking hates my guts. I have repressed lust for one of my best friends too; she's athletic, smart and a gorgeous southern bell. I love her. You know what it's like; I've been friend zoned real hard. She's my only real friend, besides this one kid, who I'm pretty sure is only hanging around me because he is mentally challenged. I guess he's the only one that can tolerate me. And what makes this all fucking worse is that I live in a fucking pineapple under the sea.
I only ask because a guy I like did it.
How can I find out whether a new company is equally month-end focused or whether they allow more flexibility with vacation time? Is this something that can be asked during an interview, or after they offer the job?
Feel free to share what it was if you want, or not.
What are your thoughts on 'feel good laws' (laws established more to give society an illusion of security than for their actual effectiveness)?
ex. sex offender residency laws, etc.
Do you think she's guilty?
Do you think she should/will be proven guilty?
Do you think she should get the death penalty, if proven guilty?
My answers in comments.
Would it be tacky to quit a job two weeks after you were hired? Would it be tacky to request less time?
Have you had dragonfruit before? Did you like it?
Did you know Arizona Iced Tea comes in bottles now?
What is the first thing you see when you look 20 degrees to your right?
What is your favorite type of apple?
Do any of you US tqc'ers have your medical marijuana card? How much work did it take to find a reputable doctor? I have chronic knee pain and also migraines and would love some relief.

I'm trying to take a close up photo of a new watch I bought. It's on my wrist.
Normally my camera auto-focuses, but it's not and I have no idea why. I might have touched something?
It's on AV mode and AF is selected on the lens. What's going on??
This is my sister's camera, and I'd ask her, but she's sleeping...
do you brush your teeth in the shower?
