Piggy-backing off the question below me...
How old are you? How old do you feel?
I'm 30 and still feel anywhere from 17-21. I don't feel 30 at all.
You have two choices for work shifts:
5 a.m. - 12 p.m.
12 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Assume those are your only options and this is a permanent choice. This job is five days a week, with weekends off. Which do you choose and why?
It's 8.35am and I've been up all night trying to finish an essay. My brain has gone to smoosh..
Please TQC, help me find a word!
When you are comparing two things which are similar and different, you could say that these things ___________ and differ..
You can say that, right?
How would you say that two things kind of 'converge' and 'diverge'?
They "_______ and differ" is a real phrase, isn't it? I'm starting to think maybe I imagined this word.
And before you ask, I have actually try synonyms for differ on thesaurus.com :(
If someone wears a size 4 1/2 shoe, would you get them a 3/4 slipper or 5/6 slipper?
How sacrilegious am I if I rip the cover off of a bunch of books?
Okay so copying them is a ridiculously smart and simple option that I totally overlooked, the books will be spared.
But what if they're just harlequin romance novels?
Besides the obvious of used book stores and thrift stores, where else might I fight such books?
have you ever wanted something SO badly that it's all you can think about? how did you deal with it? did you ever get what you wanted? my answer is in the comments.

As I'm writing a paper, I keep coming back to a line where I mentioned the Harry Potter series, but I don't know if I should be italicizing it or not. It's not naming any particular title, but my brain is saying "italicize it!"
So, in a sentence that reads "The way that magic is portrayed in The Magicians is a far cry from the magic in the Harry Potter series ...", would I need to italicize?
DK/DC: Are you currently stressed out majorly about anything?
Whats a food you dislike that everyone you know loves?
For me, its fudge.
Whats a food you really enjoy that most people don't?
I can eat raw, plain celery all day long.

What sort of stuff do you store under your bed?
I've been trying to get organized but I'm not sure about where I want to put stuff.
how much older are your parents than you?
I have a christmas dress up party to go to, and I was going to go as the little match stuck girl, because I am a grinch, but have just realised the theme is actually 'nativity', although we are being strongly encouraged to "Queer it and fuck it up as much as you want. Near nudity and Mary-Magdalene-in-Chains kind of hilarity is strongly encouraged, nay, requested."
What nativity character/thing can I go as? The innapropriater the betterer.

What's the last hard thing you did?
I'm typing a letter to send to various people who might be related to me in an effort to find my dad's side of the family. I'm scared and hurt and feel unbearably lost.
Where do you like to shop for out-of-the-ordinary sweaters (preferably some place I can browse online)?
Where was the most exciting trip you went on with your school?
My lecturer has organised an 'outing' for us tomorrow (not an official trip).
I have loads of work to catch up on and have been to the place before, plus it's just for the sake of it. My ex-housemate who HATES me is also going on the trip.
However, I feel bad as i'm meant to be getting a lift with my friend (and a couple of others) and don't want to abandon them. Though i'm sure they'll do fine without me.
Do I go or not?
Are you any good at playing Trivial Pursuit?
Will you share some fun random facts with us?
Do you know many people with birthdays over this Christmas/holiday/party season?

Do you believe that guys and girls can be friends without getting emotionally involved with each other?
Is there such a thing as emotional infidelity?

Apparently, my son likes to SCREAM bloody murder now when he's hungry. He literally ate less than an hour ago (6 oz and he's 3 months old). I've never felt like a worse mother. :(
Will you cheer me up please?
ETA: He never used to scream. The only time he would scream previously is when he would choke on his spit while laying down (he got it from his father :/) This is the first time he started screaming because he's hungry.
Have you ever bought anything off MyGofer.com? How was it?
I can't find much in the way of reviews.
TQC, how do you deal with exasperating people in your life?
A really good friend of mine has a habit of getting angry/sad about a given situation and then not wanting to take steps to fix it, even if the steps are really easy and she knows that she'd cheer up afterward. I try to be patient with her and just let her vent, but I'm naturally a fixer and want to see her more cheerful, and when I propose solutions she just says things like, "No, it's fine, I'll just keep things the way they are." Would this annoy you?
DK/DC: Have you seen Once Upon a Time? I'm really digging the two episodes I've seen so far!
Do you watch The Next Iron Chef on the Food Network? Who do you want to win?
have you ever had any 'x is love' colorbars in your lj profile? what were they? what are some other lj trends you can recall?
My sister and I got my mom a specialty container to store her cake decorating supplies. It was cheaper than expected, so we're going to get some goodies to go in. Which would be the most fun way for the gifts to be wrapped?
a) wrap it all separately, Mom opens the small gifts first, then the container.
b) place the items inside the container, wrap the container.
c) wrap items separately, place goodies in container before wrapping the container.
d) some other option that is infinitely more fun.
When was the last time you were gluttonous?
I just finished off a 2 liter of Cherry Coke Zero in about two hours....uuuuuh, I hate myself.
Im trying to wean myself off of soda completely so Im going from Sprite, to diet and then hopefully nothing...Im tired of drinking my calories.
Have you moved somewhere expecting to love it and hated it, or vice versa?
What's the story?
When you find yourself in a relationship, does whoever you're dating in any given year tend to give relatively no fucks about your birthday, or am I just lucky?
What do you tend to expect on your birthdays, and how often are these expectations realized?
Also, what is up with everyone having birthdays in November and December? There's a new one every other day in my group of friends.
What was the last thing to annoy or bother you?
I am a secular Jew, I guess you could say (i.e., I am an atheist, but I celebrate Jewish holidays and traditions because everyone in my family is religiously Jewish and I was raised that way). I celebrate Hanukkah. My SO keeps asking what I want for Christmas, despite my corrections. Would this annoy you?
If you celebrate any sort of holiday with gift-giving (Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.) what are you getting/have you gotten your SO?
