do you use twitter?
whats your twitter handle?
do you want to follow each other? im boring and tweet stuff like "i'm eating fajitas*"
*i really did eat fajitas and they were damn good.
Um, to make that make sense: I'm baking cupcakes and somehow ended up with enough batter for 16 cupcakes (the recipe called for 1 cup of mashed banana but I used two whole bananas so I ended up with a little more). I filled one pan, and have just 4 cupcakes in the second pan. I have both pans in the oven at the same time. Can I expect those 4 to take the same amount of time as the other 12, or will they be done faster?
Dk/dc: do you like to bake? What's one of your specialties?
I'm currently making banana cupcakes with a chocolate cream cheese frosting. I've never actually made this before. I have had great success with marbled chocolate-banana cupcakes with a peanut butter cream cheese frosting... but one of the women in the group I'm supplying cupcakes for is allergic to nuts, so I decided to change it up a bit.
- Do you prefer loose or bagged tea?
- Do you add milk/sugar/lemon/milk?
- Do you prefer your tea hot or warm?
This was in our local paper yesterday... Apparently Amish men are breaking in to other Amish people's houses and cutting off their beards and hair.
What do you think they do with all that hair?

Today was my only morning to sleep in, after running doubles all week. My mother started slamming around the house at 9am and, giving no shits whatsoever, woke me the fuck up. Going back to sleep is not an option. How raged-out are you when someone wakes you up on a sleep-in day?
ETA: I guess 9 does sound like a decent sleep in, so I shall add that I didn't get to bed until 3am. I was hoping I could sleep until 10ish.
If it changes things any, I've lived in the same town my whole life other than the 4 years I was in college (and then I was only 2 hours drive away) and he's lived in the same town since he was 5. Also our town is within 10 miles of both sets of parents. So it would be a huge change to move.
DK/DC: Any exciting plans for Thanksgiving weekend?
Serious/non serious answers!
so, what kind of (reasonably cheap) laptop would you recommend? i'm not interested in a netbook because i don't care for the small keyboard and macs are out of my price range. i currently have a toshiba satellite and it has never had any problems at all until it hit its third year. i mostly just use the computer for schoolwork, internet, music, video streaming, and playing the sims, so i don't need anything too heavy duty.
Edit: RESOLVED! Eighth generation Buick Riviera. Ugly as sin.
if not, how do i stop myself from feeling so guilty over it? (and i didnt even decide that im not going yet!)
(and you would most likely go to your friends dinner, bc you actually feel like going to that?)
(theres no family drama at all, just really dont feel like going.)
For me, it'd be Goodreads.
What were the results?
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
Which day were you born on? Are you anything like ___day's child?
What was your favorite thing?
What was your least favorite thing?
Do you think TQC/livejournal is a hideout for people who struggle socially?
I nominate garter belts. Too uncomfortable to make me feel sexy.
My fiance and I have decided that, rather than accepting gifts, we'd like to encourage our wedding guests to make contributions on our behalf to organizations serving those more needy than we are. We have a few charities that we already support via donations, but I'm willing to bet there are other great ones that we're missing.
ETA: You guys are great! Thanks for all the ideas/comments!
Well, I have decided to trap the momma and take my latest lottery winnings (1000.00) and get her fixed and immunized.
Do you think this is going too far for a stray kitty?
Can I get her fixed and stuff while she is nursing?
Would how well they pass as their identified gender matter?
Would it make a difference if you were going to be going to the same restroom as them (ex: you are a woman and thus the MTF may be in the bathroom with you)?
My friend who is helping me plan thinks I should, but I feel like that is just asking for handouts without offering anything.
EDIT: I should add that they already know I'm pregnant, so I feel like if they wanted to send me something they could. You know?
DK/DC: What is your favorite kind of donut?
We bought cider donuts today. :)
